Opportunities for artists

An Táin Arts Centre is making a call out to graduates and artists at the start of their career to apply for their Emerging Visual Artist Residency programme.

The aim of the residency is to assist artists to research and develop new work and give them the time and space to develop their practice in a community setting.

The resident artist will be provided with the studio space adjoining The Basement Gallery from July 1 to September 30, administrative and outreach support, and the opportunity to use the main gallery space for the month of September. The value of the bursary is €2000, which includes a living stipend of €500 per month and a materials bursary of up to €500.

Previous recipients include Una Curley, Roseanne Berrill, Sean McGuill and Rozzi Kennedy/

The successful artist or arts collective will be selected by a shortlisting and interview process, based on artist CV, proposal, portfolio, and references.
