Creative Practitioner in Residence
Westmeath County Council Culture and Creativity Team, with funding from the Department of Tourism, Culture, Arts, Gaeltacht, Sport and Media’s Decade of Centenaries Programme, invites submissions for a special residency working with the theme of ‘The Big House’; looking at Westmeath Big Houses through the lens of their local Communities’.
The aim of this commission is to enable a Creative Practitioner to engage meaningfully with relevant individuals, communities and groups and respond to the theme of ‘the Big House’; exploring the perspective of both the residents and the wider communities by creating work that capture the themes and stories which emerge during the project.
The successful applicant will liaise with the project steering group (which may include the Heritage Officer, the Arts Officer and staff from Westmeath Library), who will review progress of the project and approve associated budget spend.
The Creative Practitioner will be engaged for a residency (June – November 2021), with an award of €15,000 (to include all project costs, materials, travel, etc.), to be paid in three instalments.
