Vagabond Reviews + Fatima Groups United
Established by Ailbhe Murphy and Ciaran Smyth in 2007, Vagabond Reviews is an interdisciplinary platform committed to developing creative and collaborative models of knowledge production through a combination of art interventions, research practice and critical analysis. Major projects include Open Space research for Dublin City Council and Cultural Review with Fatima Groups United.
Vagabond Reviews during this residency established a dedicated presence in Rialto during the engagement and production phase of the Cultural Review, a collaborative research initiative which began in 2008 partnership with Fatima Groups United. The studio also became a hub for artists and local arts-based initiatives including workshops with children from the Fatima and Dolphin Homework Clubs and a Drawing Group.
