For Immediate Release
Eve O'Kelly, Director of the Contemporary Music Centre, Awarded London Fellowship
2 October 2006
The director of the Contemporary Music Centre, Eve O'Kelly, has been awarded a Visiting Fellowship at the Centre for Research on Transnational Art, Identity and Nation (TrAIN) of the University of the Arts in London.
The University of the Arts, formerly the London Institute, is one of Britain's leading academic institutions and is Europe's largest university specializing in the performing arts, communication, art, design and fashion. It has an active research environment in cutting-edge areas such as the interface of new technologies with creative practice, and questions surrounding cultural identity in an age of globalisation.
Eve will be on sabbatical leave from the Contemporary Music Centre from November 2006 until January 2008 to pursue research on topics relating to the promotion of music and the arts internationally and across artform boundaries. This will bring a new dimension to the next phase of development for CMC and will be of great benefit in her future leadership of the Centre.
Jonathan Grimes, who has held the post of Information Manager at the Contemporary Music Centre for the last eight years, will run the organisation as General Manager until Eve's return.
The Contemporary Music Centre is Ireland's national library and promotion agency for new music. It has its home in a historic building in Fishamble Street in the Old City. The Contemporary Music Centre is supported by the Arts Council/An Chomhairle Ealaíon.
