Graphic Studio Dublin invites applications for the annual Graduate Awards, open to students of print graduating from NCAD, IADT and TU Dublin in 2020. This programme offers artists graduating from college a direct link to a professional studio, giving them the opportunity to continue to expand and develop their art practice in a professional studio with technical support and materials. It provides artists at a key stage, with an opportunity to engage critically with a broad spectrum of printmakers at varying career levels, while benefiting from their support and mentorship.
2-3 awards will be given and include 1 year’s membership of Graphic Studio with technical and creative support from the Studio Director, a stipend for materials to the value of €400 and a place on a GSD print course of their choice. They may also be invited to exhibit in Graphic Studio Gallery over the year. Due to current restrictions, the award may not commence until January 2021.
