Deirdre Robb is on the Move
Deirdre Robb has moved from Creative Exchange Artist Studios a collective she founded 21 years ago in the east of the city and has founded a new collective Embrace Studios based in the heart of West Belfast in Blackstaff Mill.
Robb states ‘The idea behind Embrace studios is to work and collaborate with artists who have common goals and the mission is to work with artists whose works explore political, social, gender or cultural inequality issues’.
The studios are a catalyst for the creation of experimental and innovative contemporary visual-arts and are dedicated to exploring and giving voice to the uniqueness of the individual, locations, and communities in which they investigate.
Embrace artists are at different stages of their career and work in various mediums including painting, sculpture, drawing, photography, performance and installation art. They collaborate through public art interventions, are involved in socially engaged arts-led regeneration, as well as exhibiting locally, nationally and internationally.
Embrace Studios are located on the 2nd floor of the Blackstaff Mill on Springfield Road. Go to the main entrance and through the corridor on the left-hand side is a lift/stairs go to 2nd floor and go through 2 sets of double doors and we are the 2nd door on the left-hand side.
