Please see previous call out for the House residency here
Residency Includes: Each bed/Studio has an ensuite shower room. The kitchen is shared. Parts of the barns, the fields and woodlands and the fine rooms of the house are all available as places to develop live art projects and art films. We have a fast wifi network
We currently have funds for a small bursary artist payment. If selected we can write you a letter of acceptance which can be used to apply for further funding.
Residents are encouraged to cook a meal together in the evenings. We do not cook meat here both for the environment and because getting rid of meat waste is an issue in the countryside. We do a weekly online vegetarian grocery shop you will be asked to contribute towards this please see example shop below (for two artists in residence). Snacks etc you can bring or buy yourself locally you will be allocated a food cupboard and space in the fridge.
Transport: There are buses to Nenagh and trains to Cloughjordan – we can pick you up from there. We have bicycles available to ride to the nearest shop in Terryglass by Lough Derg. If you have a car you are welcome to drive it here.
We encourage slow travel this means working out the most carbon efficient way of travelling here. This could mean by car if it is electric or hybrid, but generally by bus or train. If you are an artist who normally lives in a location where it would be impractical to travel overland such as North and South America, Autralasia, east Asia etc we encourage you to only apply if you are already in Ireland the UK, North Africa or mainland Europe
Residency Covid Safe Guidance: Artists will be encouraged to take lateral flow tests and to show proof of vaccination. Masks will be worn in the common parts of the house until all artists have been there for 3 days and taken a negative lateral flow test
Accessibility: There are no ground floor bedrooms at present although there is a shower and toilet on the ground floor. The Studio bedrooms are on the second and third floor so there are stairs to them.
We welcome artists who identify under the social model of disability and welcome feedback on accommodations. If you need to submit an application in an alternative format please get in touch well before the deadline to arrange.
