For our first studio tour of 2022 we are delighted to be going behind the scenes with film maker Róisín Loughrey and writer Niamh Mc Cabe. The virtual studio tours give us a glimpse of the diversity and breath of creative practices of artists in the Creative Frame network and is a unique opportunity to hear a range of artists talk about their process and practice from the spaces in which they create.
