The programme is open to recent graduates and artists at the start of their career looking to establish a collaborative practice in a community setting. The aim of the residency is to assist artists to research and develop new work and give them the time and space to develop their practice in a community setting.
Part of the residency will include the mentoring of second level students on their portfolio for third level. Aside from this, we are not prescriptive about in the manner in which you work with and in the community, but we would like to see applications that demonstrate a genuine interest in collaboration and public engagement. Applications from individual artists and/or arts collectives working in any visual arts form are welcome.
During the three-month residency, artists are provided with studio space, administrative support, a living stipend of €1500, materials budget of €500, and the opportunity to use the main gallery for the month of September.
