Ciara Harrison

Project Artist
Ciara Harrison is a visual artist from Dublin, Ireland. Since graduating with a B. Des in Textile Design (2011) and an MA in Design History and Material Culture (2016) from the National College of Art and Design Ciara has focused her artistic practice in socially-engaged and participatory art.

Themes of hospitality, education and the preservation and dissemination of skills and knowledge inform Ciara’s practice. She endeavours to create social change through collaboration with individuals, communities and institutions in the creation of participatory art.
Working as an Artist in Residence in University Hospital Waterford (2017) Ciara further developed her interests in arts and health, facilitation, partnership building, outreach, access and reflection.

Ciara has since progressed to work with national institutions, charities and schools with the support of the Arts Council, Dun Laoghaire Rathdown County Council and the Design and Crafts Council of Ireland. She is a member of Visual Artists Ireland.
