Artists in Residence’, Leitrim Sculpture Centre : Call for Applications 2015    

Leitrim Sculpture Centre in association with Leitrim County Council Arts Office, are offering five residencies to visual artists in 2014. Each residency has a total value of €3,000 paid directly to the artist. Each residency is supported by provision of studio space in Leitrim Sculpture Centre, along with access to all the facilities and basic technical support.

Background of artists applying for these residencies:

While subject to alteration, in the allocation of residencies, it is envisaged that:

  • Up to two residencies will be considered for artists originally from or living in Leitrim.

  • Up to three residencies will be considered for artists from elsewhere within Ireland.

  • Up to two will be considered for artists from outside Ireland.

Residencies fall into two types and these may also overlap

  1. Residencies to support artists wishing to develop or extend the boundaries of their own professional and technical skills and/or practice. It is envisaged that two residencies would fall within this category.

  2. Residencies to support artists to lead engagement with places / people / industry / groups / communities or landscapes in Leitrim (to be suggested or identified by the artist in their proposal). It is envisaged that three residencies would fall within this category.

Artists are eligible to submit proposals for each type of residency or combination of both types. Within both categories, the artist is expected to develop new work. All works created will be exhibited in the Centre at the end of the residency period or shortly thereafter. Deadline: Tuesday, 5th August, 5pm, 2014. Notification: Monday, 18th August 2014
