Deirdre MacKenna

Deirdre’s field of practice is both interdisciplinary and intercultural, facilitating an interest in the intangible elements of cultural hybridity, time and place.

Her most recent work involves devising and producing programmes of ‘cultural instruments’ (events, films, images, texts etc) through bespoke collaborations with individuals and agencies.
