Darkroom and Digital Production Facility at Backwater Artists Group, Cork

Application deadline: Friday 27 April, 5pm

Backwater Artists Group have launched a new darkroom facility on the 2nd floor of the Wandesford Quay facility. Initiated, built and administrated by studio member, visual artist and photographer Darn Thorn, this new resource is designed not only to meet the needs of lens-based artists at Backwater Artists Group, but to also address the deficit of darkroom facilities in Cork City following the closure of other studios in recent years. Backwater Artist Group invite submissions for users of the new darkroom and associated digital production facility. Full details of the terms and conditions of associate usage are provided in guidelines document. Initially only three positions will be available for one year, so this open call will be competitive.

There will be a charge of €45 per month. Associate users will provide their own materials and chemicals. Storage and disposal of chemicals will be included.

Form and full guidelines available upon request by email.

Please submit proposals by email or online file transfer (dropbox or wetranfer) to projects@backwaterartists.ie. Applicants will be notified by Friday 4th of May and interviews for shortlisted applicants held during the week 14th -18th of May. Applicants will be notified by Friday 25th of May and darkroom usage will commence in June.
