Artlink Residency at Fort Dunree (Ireland)
Artlink are seeking two visual artists – one Irish and one international – to take part in artist residencies at Artlink Fort Dunree, Donegal, Ireland, in 2020. Applications are open to professional visual artists working in any discipline.
Artlink is a successful artist-lead visual artists organisation, currently based in the impressive cliff top location of Fort Dunree. Dunree has been an important military site throughout history; contrasted with its surrounding natural beauty and abundant wildlife, it draws increasing numbers of national and international visitors. Artlink’s residency programme gives artists the opportunity to research, experiment and create new original work and contribute to the creative development of the local arts community.
Artists in residence must be available for four weeks between March and December 2020. (This can be split into two or more visits.) During the residency artists are expected to develop new work or new ideas based on the unique site, and engage with local artists and Artlink members. Resident artists are expected to actively create within the studio space for at least 20 hours a week and be willing to hold open studio hours with the public for a minimum of one day a week. Public engagement could be through presenting artist talks, workshops, demonstrations or other events.
Artists will be paid a residency fee of €6500 (international resident) or €5000 (Ireland resident) for undertaking the residency. The residency fee covers all flights, accommodation, transport, materials, living expenses and the artist’s fee.
Deadline: 13 December 2019
