Over the years we have supported artists through a programme of residencies. In general these residencies have asked the artist to undertake work in collaboration with communities, schools and groups.
As outlined in the current Arts Plan we will revise this programme to offer artists-in-residence programmes that focus on the making of new work utilising funding through the Dept of the Environment Percent for Art Scheme. The scope for proposals remains open – it might for instance support an artist making new work – to be presented/performed or exhibited in the county or it may support an artist working with others in developing his/her ideas towards the creation of a new work.
A writer in residence will be appointed in the autumn 2016 and more details and application forms will be available shortly.
