Application deadline: Thursday 22 August, 4pm.
This residency offers visual artists the opportunity to work in Rome for a period of 6 months between the start of January and the end of June 2020 on a project of their choosing. Rather than experimenting on new techniques, scholars are encouraged to use their time to work on developing ideas for a new body of work or exploring themes that will advance their practice. The Fellow is encouraged to be self-reliant and adaptable.
Who can apply?
Visual artists working in any discipline, who have made a contribution to artistic activities in Northern Ireland for a minimum period of one year within the last five years.
Who cannot apply?
Applicants who have held a British School in Rome Fellowship in the last ten years.
Students currently in full-time or part-time educational courses. Established artists currently undertaking recognised academic courses may be considered only in exceptional circumstances.
Applicants who have broken the conditions of previous grant awards within the previous 4 years (taken from the date of the letter of offer).
