Artist Statement

Amelia Caulfield is a multidisciplinary socially engaged artist from Thomastown, Kilkenny.


Amelia is interested in examining the interconnectedness and interdependence of global justice issues, as well as how we as humans think, decide, dream, and learn, in local contexts.


A core goal of her work is to empower the public to utilise autonomy and agency, and to take considered action in relation to their own values, the design and experience of their daily environments, and their global issues of concern. 


Through her work, Amelia aims to provide spaces for collective community action, collaborative imagining, and knowledge exchange with an emphasis on discovering new ways in which we can live well together. This work encourages examination of individual and collective values as a means to connect both internally and to others. 


The methodologies used in her context specific situated practice include creative placemaking, workshops, and discussions. Her work is mostly process and artist led, and usually invites public participation.


Amelia is inspired by examples of collective action, community collaboration and support, and ambitious, radical, innovative ideas about our future of living well together.
