Creative Spark/Create Louth Residency Programme

A visual artist´s residency with printmaking facilities.

Creative Spark, Dundalk, Co. Louth is delighted to have the opportunity to offer a Creative Spark/Create Louth Residency Programme.

The residency programme will award up to five residencies to visual artists each year. Residencies will be of 2 to 3 months in duration (commencement date negotiable from September 1st 2015 to August 31st 2016).Each residency will be supported by provision of studio space in Creative Spark, along with access to all the facilities and basic technical support. In addition Creative Spark will provide full-time access to the Creative Spark Print Studio as part of the residency programme.

Applicants: residencies will be offered to a selection of artists from Louth (originally from/ living in), Ireland (nationwide) and International artists.

A small materials budget will be made available to selected artists towards projects for the duration.

The residency does not include accommodation or travel expenses. The selected artist must make their own travel and living arrangements. All expenses incurred are the responsibility of the selected artist.

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 Louth (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.
The recipient artist will be required to give demonstrations and provide talks on their practice during their residency and donate one piece to Creative Spark archives. The residency should include a community participation element and may conclude with an exhibition of the recipients work locally.

All applications and accompanying materials must arrive by 4.00 pm Friday 30th June 2015.
