The Residency will run during the month of June, incorporating International Refugee week (17-23 June 2019) offering opportunities for discussion and development of work.
New for 2019, Create are delighted to partner with Carlow Arts Festival to offer a residency award with Carlow Arts Festival, for an artist from an ethnical minority background. The Residency will begin in May, and run to June, to incorporate this interdisciplinary festival which takes place from 4- 9 June 2019.
Both residencies are funded through the Arts Council of Ireland’s Artist in the Community Scheme, which is managed by Create. Applicants may apply for only one of the offered residencies. More information and application procedure can be found here: create-ireland.ie/aic-residencies
