A new opportunity for artists and writers with children during the Irish midterm break February 15-22nd 2020.
We know many artist’s are parents, too. The logistics and cost of child care can make residencies a challenge – and many residencies don’t even allow children. We wanted to create an affordable week away where kids can be themselves and parents can get some much needed studio time.
Two subsidised residencies will be awarded, one to a writer and one to a visual artist.
Each recipient will receive:
- Accommodation for their family and themselves over 2 bedrooms at a reduced rate.
- Private workspace – artist studio or writer’s den.
- Children-in-residence can attend three art/craft workshops during the week (ideal for primary school age students.
- A work-in-progress sharing Friday February 21st.
Applications are due by November 3rd 2019.
Notifications will go out in November 2019.
Fee: €350 per family.
Includes 2 bedrooms with all linens and towels, shared bathrooms, self-catering kitchen, access to communal spaces and grounds (value approx. €530). Also included: 3 children’s art workshops, organisation and promotion of work-in-progress event.
This residency does not include child care, but we would be happy to facilitate a connection between selected artists and local carers based on their needs.
