Open Call for Creative Residency in Sport
The Creative Residency in Sport is a new partnership between the Dublin City Sport & Wellbeing Partnership and Dublin City Council Culture Company. Through the residency, the selected artists will be encouraged to explore the theme of art and sport, with reference to a designated local sports club, and to create a final (permanent or temporary) creative work for public presentation at the end of the residency.
The artists will also have the support of an Advisory Group and a network of fellow artists, creative producers, sports officers and sports professionals. Built into the residency is the opportunity to share practice, avail of peer meet-ups and learning opportunities and engage new audiences.
The Creative Residency in Sport will provide opportunity for up to five artists to work collaboratively with a prescribed sports club, its members and wider club community, to create and present new work which explores the theme of art and sport. Areas of interest may include for example; connection and participation, stereotypes and identity, and the role of creativity in sport. All formats and all art forms are eligible.
Each selected artist will be offered a Contract for Service with a fee of up to €12,000 to cover time spent working on the residency, including development, studio time, preparation, contact time and admin. The working pattern and programme of work will be agreed with the successful applicants. Additional funds may be allocated to cover the cost of materials and production, for the creation of artworks or other residency outputs, as agreed with the Culture Company.
