 Welcome to Dispatches, the National Sculpture Factory annual. Here we presentreports of some of our activities and projects of 2011, a busy, productive andrewarding year. With Robin Lee Architects we have completed a capital development programmewhich, over two years, has seen significant and thoughtful interventions being madein the NSF facility and onto the façade. We now have a contemporary entrance whichextends the NSF’s presence onto the street.In 2011 we were selected for European funding on a professional programme toenable artists, curators and other arts professionals to undertake residencies andsignificant curatorial research and development across Ireland, Germany, Scotlandand Mexico.Our studios were operating to capacity and you will see some of the works,produced in the NSF throughout the year, in these pages. We commissioned several projects, collaborated with many organisations andfestivals locally, nationally and internationally. We hosted workshops, sonic walks,films, dance workshops, performances, sound art events as well as experimentsand we continue to advocate for the further involvement of artists in the builtenvironment. At the NSF we realise nothing is possible without the creativity and the willingsupport of artists, so thank you all for your continued good will. We thank our principal funders: the Arts Council, Cork City Council and Fás, ourproject funders: Culture Ireland , our sponsors principally: Bord Gáis and Cork Rent a Van (we hope that list will be longer next year) our collaborators: Static,Mitchell+Associates and the Corona Cork Film Festival.Significantly, we also wish to genuinely and sincerely thank all those people we callon for support so often, in particular our colleagues in the cultural and educationsector particularly in Cork: we borrow equipment and resources from you for manyevents and you continue to generously support us, so thank you for helping us make2011 a great year at the NSF.Mary Mc Carthy, Director And the NSF Team: Donal Dilworth, Dobz O’Brien, Elma O’Donovan, PatriciaCrowther, Grainne Creed, John Booth, Stephanie Hough and Jessie Mae WInchester(to Nov 2011).
