The School of Arts Education and Movement is seeking an artist(s) in residence for the academic year 2019-2020. This opportunity is one of a number of artist residencies supported by the Arts Council/An Chomhairle Ealaíon in the context of Initial Teacher Education. Each residency aims to:
- provide future teachers with opportunities to engage meaningfully with the arts as part of their initial teacher education;
- support future teachers to develop the skills and confidence to facilitate meaningful arts experiences for their students, and to champion the arts in schools;
- provide opportunities for artists to develop their skills and experience in education settings, and to develop their artistic work in a collaborative and supportive environment.
The successful applicant will be paid a fee of €15,000 for the year and will also benefit from use of the space and facilities, as well as the wider DCU context such as the collegial working atmosphere, stimulating work environment, opportunities for networking and profile raising in the local as well as academic communities across three campuses and beyond through information services and media, opportunities to attend certain lectures,public and otherwise, and the vast number of cultural events at DCU.
The DCU Institute of Education is the newest faculty of Dublin City University. It is based on the DCU St Patrick’s Campus in Drumcondra in Dublin. Proposals are invited from practicing professional artists for the above role, supported by the Arts Council and DCU Institute of Education.
