€8,000 ITMA/Clare County Council Artist Residency Seeking Applications
The Irish Traditional Music Archive (ITMA) and the Arts Office of Clare County Council are seeking applications from emerging or established artists of any artistic genre for a Creator-in-Residence Scheme.
As part of the scheme, artists will be invited to reflect and respond creatively to the collections and materials in ITMA that are of relevance to County Clare.
Valued at €8,000, the residency will take place from October 2018 and offers artists support to develop and showcase new work.
Commenting on the initiative, Grace Toland, director of ITMA, said:
We are delighted to partner with Clare Arts Office in delivering our first ever Creator-in-Residence scheme. We are excited at the prospect of opening our collections in new ways and deepening our connections with the Clare arts community.
Siobhán Mulcahy of Clare County Arts Office added: ‘Not only will this scheme be of interest to local traditional artists, we anticipate a strong interest from artists not normally associated with traditional music, who may see this as an opportunity to work across art forms.’
All queries relating to the Creator-in-Residence Scheme 2018 should be submitted by email only to arts [at] clarelibrary.ie. The closing date for applications is Friday 14 September 2018.
