Public Art Residencies

Website: http://www.mayococo.ie/en/Services/ArtsOffice/ArtsNews/StoryIfNoFilesToUpload,29046,en.aspx

Mayo County Council and Aras Inis Gluaire/Erris Arts Centre invites submissions for three public art projects/residencies in Erris, County Mayo, Ireland. This is an opportunity for artists to work with communities and revisit some of the Tír Sáile sculpture trail sites with new artistic vision and approaches to contemporary public art practice. Mayo County Council invites artists to develop proposals for these commissions/residencies.  Artists can apply for any or all sites but the intention is to have a different artist for each site. They aim to engage with artists to realise contemporary artworks, assumed at this stage to be temporary, ephemeral, performance or similar, which will provide artists with opportunities to engage with the North Mayo landscape and local people. All artforms will be considered and groups of artists are also welcome to apply. Maximum budget is €10,000 for each residency, and will cover design, supply, installation or performance, artist’s fee and any community involvement initiatives. This is based on approximately a one month residency period, 2 week research and development phase and attendance at launch events. Accommodation for the full period of the residency will be provided and further supports around documentation, launch costs, marketing etc will be provided.
