Temple Bar Gallery + Studios (TBG+S) in partnership with Helsinki International Artist-in-Residence Programme (HIAP) are now inviting applications from Irish artists for the eleventh annual exchange between Ireland and Finland in 2017.
The TBG+S/HIAP International Residency Exchange allows one Finnish artist to live and work in Dublin for a period of two months and supports an Irish artist to spend six weeks in residency at HIAP, in a live/work studio on the island of Suomenlinna in Helsinki from April to May 2017.
Since the partnership began in 2007, TBG+S and HIAP have supported a total of 16 artists and curators from Ireland and Finland to undertake new creative work in the cities of Dublin and Helsinki through an exchange programme. Now a well-established opportunity, the TBG+S and HIAP exchange fosters opportunities for Irish artists to work in an international arena.
The TBG+S and HIAP International Studio Programme is supported by The Arts Council of Ireland, The Finnish Institute, London, The Embassy of Finland, Dublin and FRAME – The Finnish Fund for Art Exchange.
