Submission Deadline: 10 December, 10am.

Irish Architecture Foundation announces an Open Call for a New Curating Architecture Residency. The IAF is a cultural agency with a national and international remit. We are excited by the unconventional, experimental, contextually rich and culturally engaged. IAF often operate in the spaces between architectural culture, design and spatial practice. They communicate to the public through exhibitions, talks, publications and public events.

IAF are looking for a curator or curatorial team to research and deliver a programme that will open to the public in June 2019 —this could be an exhibition, film screenings, discursive events, learning and outreach or a combination of all.

Budget: Curator(s) fee of €5,000 and production budget of €15,000. It is a modest budget so you must think creatively, to maximise on content, delivery and impact and offer convincing methodologies for research, communication and dissemination.

All applicants must propose a clearly formulated residency project with a proposed theme, concept and suggested delivery method, to be further developed through mentoring at the IAF.

This proposal should include:

  • This proposal must state the what, why and the how of your intentions for the residency and be cognisant of the objectives and selection criteria. (1000 words max).
  • A project schedule for research and delivery, (400 words max)
  • Budget breakdown
  • A CV (3 pages maximum) inc. names for 2 potential referees
  • Short biography (50 words)

Interested candidates are invited to attend an information session at the IAF between 1-2pm, on the 27th of November, where they will discuss the objectives of the residency and give a tour of the spaces in the building. Please register your interest in attending this session through
