B. FUNDED ARTISTS RATES


FUNDED PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENT RESIDENCIES

PDR’s provide a practical research and development residential base for artists working in all media who need time out to investigate a specific idea and/or explore a technical or material process, of their choosing, in order to advance their practice. Artists on PDR’s typically build-in technical training into their residencies availing of the Centre’s experienced technicians to do this – see technical costs below. PDR’s come without the requirement of an exhibition or any specific outcome at the end, apart from a short progress report to LSC. Previously, artists have received funding from their local County Councils or schemes such as the AC Agility or Bursary Awards, to take up PDR’s. For artists without funding, we offer a subsidised charge rate – please contact us for details. Our residential facilities are available to all artists working in any creative process who need space and time to further their practice.
