They are seeking applications from artists who would like to meet and work with rural communities along the River Shannon in Ireland during the Spring and Summer of 2021.

This call for submissions is open to artists working in all artforms. One artist or artist-led collective will be hosted in each rural location in Cavan, Clare, Limerick and Tipperary. The River Residencies are part of the Museum of Mythological Water Beasts (2017–), an artistic project about, along and on the River Shannon.
The artist fee is €4000.
The materials and production budget is €4000.
Travel costs (up to a maximum of €1000) and self-catering accommodation will be provided.
