Traditional Artist in Residence at UCC
The Traditional Artist in Residence, based in the Department of Music in the College of Arts, Celtic Studies, and Social Sciences, is designed to provide a traditional artist (traditional musician, singer, dancer, story-teller or practitioner of the oral arts such as agallamh beirte and lúibíní) with a unique opportunity to develop their practice in a university environment while offering students of music the opportunity to engage with a practising artist in a meaningful way during the course of their studies.
The fee to the Traditional Artist in Residence is €30,000, with the Arts Council contributing €20,000 and the university €10,000. UCC will provide the Traditional Artist in Residence with a dedicated space, where they can conduct their own creative practice, within the university. UCC will also support the residency administratively. The fee will be paid in two instalments directly by the Arts Council, with a final report to be submitted by the Traditional Artist in Residence at the conclusion of the residency.
Applications should be sent to Jack Talty (Email: JTalty [at] ucc.ie (JT)) by 5.30 pm on Thursday, 28 October 2021.
