Triskel Arts Centre in Cork is delighted to announce WRITE RECORD PERFORM – Triskel Music Residencies.

This Residency Programme is primarily aimed at Professional Musicians, Composers and Songwriters. Collaborative Projects across genres and other media where Music is the “lead” are also welcome.

Triskel Arts Centre is committed to equity and inclusion, and particularly welcomes applications from under-represented musicians, including but not limited to: musicians of colour, musicians with disabilities, Traveller musicians and LGBTQ+ musicians.

Professional artists are people who, although they might not earn income continuously or exclusively from their arts practice, do identify themselves and are recognised by their peers as professional practising artists.

Applications may be from Professional artists who wish to create their own original works, e.g. composers, songwriters, or interpret the works of others, e.g. Classical or Traditional Musicians.

WRITE: Refers to the three-month period where researching, composing, arranging, planning and other activities relating to the Project take place.
RECORD: Refers to the finished Project recorded in a format such as Audio or Audio-Visual media e.g., an album, an online concert, a Digital album, a Visual Album etc.
PERFORM: A Live World Premiere Concert which is held at Triskel Christchurch.
