THE SPRINGHALL ARTIST IN RESIDENCE 2019

DREAMERS SPACE - CORRINA ASKIN

Artist, Illustrator and animator Corrina Askin was awarded our first Springhall Artist in Residence opportunity earlier this year. Since she commenced her residency with us in June, Corrina has been developing Dreamer’s Space, which will consist of various artworks and subtle site-specific illustrations and installations throughout the Arts Centre and Flowerfield Park.

A graduate of the Royal College of Art, Corrina’s work has been commissioned by BBC Cbeebies, MTV, Channel 4, RTE and has been purchased around the world, including Disney Latin America, ABC Australia and Milkshake! Corrina is passionate about the power of the imagination and creativity in every individual and the resulting Dreamer’s Space trail will inspire wonder, creativity and playfulness.

Corrina comments,‘Dreamer’s Space is a series of small interactions and experiences. It aims to inspire and be still, because when we relax, we create. Dreamer’s Space is un-rushed time and unburdened cognitive space, essential for creative thought. Dreamer’s Space is a playful response to a space. It nurtures the part of you that creates. It uses ethereal and physical triggers for inspiration and to encourage stillness. An idea can be triggered by the smallest of things. Do not underestimate the value of a small thing.’
