Rosie O’Gorman is co-director of Cow House Studios in rural Wexford. She received her BA in Art and Design Education from NCAD in 2000, receiving the Larkin Memorial Award for her teaching and the Taylor Art Award for her painting. During her time there, she became committed to making contemporary art relatable and personally meaningful to her students. In 2004 she received her MFA from San Francisco Art Institute, supported by a Fulbright Scholarship. While in San Francisco, her drawing and painting practice grew to include installation, sculpture and performance, and her ideas of what art can be were challenged and cultivated. In 2007, with her husband Frank Abruzzese, she established Cow House Studios at her ancestral home, giving form to what Rosie and Frank value most; facilitating a genuine sense of connection with their home, heritage, and landscape; nurturing curiosity, community and meaningful exchange to serve artists at all stages, exploring a novel model for building a sustainable life in the arts.

Adam Stoneman is an educator and cultural worker based in County Galway. Studying at the University of Kent, Canterbury and subsequently at The Courtauld Institute of Art, London, he graduated with an MA in Art History in 2011. He has worked in both formal and informal education settings, initially as a classroom teacher in London, and later at The Science Museum, The Hunt Museum, and The Irish Museum of Modern Art (IMMA). Since 2020, his work has focused on the social and pedagogical implications of technology in the gallery and classroom, and how digitality is transforming the production and reception of culture. This included developing a series of virtual reality education workshops in Limerick, and working with Open University to develop a ‘Citizen Curation’ platform at IMMA. In 2021, with support from the Irish Museums Association and the Irish Museums Trust, he initiated the Muse-Tech Working Group, to investigate technology in a cultural context, with the research published as Museum Technology: A Critical Primer. His writing on arts, culture and technology has appeared in publications such as Jacobin, Tribune, Engage: Journal of Visual Art and Gallery Education, Museum Ireland, Visual Artists Newsletter, and Arts in Education Portal. He currently works as Creative Communities Engagement Officer, for Galway City Council’s Creative Ireland programme.
