Create and Fire Station Artists’ Studios (FSAS) are delighted to offer an Artist Residency Award, inviting expressions of interest from collaborative socially engaged artists who are from a minority ethnic background, have first-hand experience of displacement and/or are shaped by histories of intergenerational migration. For this residency, candidates may self-identify as Traveller, Roma, refugee, migrant or otherwise through lived experience and/or second generational memories.
In 2022, the Residency will take place remotely over four weeks between June and July, with some key meetings held in person. The Create and FSAS Residency offers a focused professional development opportunity that supports and nurtures the arts practice of a professional artist who is interested in developing or consolidating their collaborative/ socially engaged arts practice. Expressions of Interest must be received by 5pm on the 29th April 2022.
The residency is funded through the Arts Council of Ireland’s Artist in the Community Scheme, which is managed by Create, and the Fire Station Artists’ Studios, which is funded through the Visual Arts Department of the Arts Council of Ireland. The award is delivered through a partnership between Create and Fire Station Artists’ Studios.
