The Linenhall International Artist Residency will support an artist in the creation of new work and/or the development of their artistic practice at the Linenhall Arts Centre in County Mayo, Ireland. This opportunity is for a professional visual artist living anywhere in the world outside of Ireland.
The aim of the Linenhall International Artist Residency is to invite an artist not living in Ireland to experience life and culture in the West of Ireland. The Linenhall will facilitate events for the visiting artist and local artists and communities to meet and engage with one another.
The residency will take place in autumn 2022 over eight weeks, with both an on-site and off-site element. The initial two weeks of the residency will be Preparation Weeks (5-19 September 2022) when the artist will be paid a fee for research and development of a residency plan before traveling to Castlebar. The artist will then have full on-site access to The Linenhall artist studio and accommodation for six weeks from 20 September - 30 October 2022.
An 8 week residency fee totalling €8,000 (€200 per day) will be provided to the artist. This fee is inclusive of stipend, living costs or related expenses. A €2,000 budget is also available to cover materials or equipment needed for the duration of the residency. A contribution to travel expenses of €650 is available and can be used for any related travel expenses to Ireland or travel within Ireland on arrival.
