David Teevan received a PhD from University College Dublin in March 2020 for his dissertation (En)acting Democracy: practice and policy in contemporary Irish collaborative art.
David Teevan has worked for 25 years as a creative producer in the professional arts sector in Ireland. Over the years he created, developed and managed a number of highly regarded arts organisations including Clonmel Junction Festival, Ten 42 Productions and Galloglass Theatre Company.
At the core of David’s practice has been the gathering together of creative teams to realize artistic projects that have the potential to transform the lives of those who engage with the work. Latterly David has turned towards a more socially engaged practice that brings together professional artists and communities of place or interest to collaborate on durational, multi-disciplinary projects.
Since 2016 David has held the position of Festival Advisor to the Arts Council of Ireland.
