Leitrim County Council Arts Office seeks interest from artists who wish to participate in the 2017 SPARK artists’ residency programme.
SPARK is a partnership project of Leitrim County Council Arts Office and the Local Enterprise Office Leitrim supported by the Arts Council. It is aimed at artists who are interested in working in new environments and companies who are interested in collaborating with artists and promoting creativity within their organisations. As part of Spark, artists take on the dual roles of artist and collaborator and in both roles, there are no pre-determined outcomes and instead these are determined by the artist in partnership with the company as the residency progresses.
This year’s residency will be with Leitrim County Council itself, based at the local authority’s headquarters in Carrick on Shannon and it presents a particularly exciting opportunity for artists that have an interest in the work of a local authority.
