Artist Residency & Creative Enquiry

Cork Midsummer Festival and Springboard, a community based family support project that strives to ensure positive outcomes for children, are collaborating to deliver an Artist in Residency and Creative Enquiry with young Traveller children and their families, exploring the relationship between cultural identity and cultural engagement.

We are delighted to invite applications from experienced participatory artists with a focus on user-led methods or a rights-based approach to their practice, and particularly welcome applications from artists from black or ethnic minorities, including artists from a Traveller background.

The successful artist will receive a fee of €10,000 plus expenses, and will be available to carry out their Artist in Residency and Creative Enquiry between February until July 2021, involving a series of regular workshops taking place in Cork city and a public event as part of Cork Midsummer Festival in June 2021.

The deadline for applications is 4pm, Tuesday 22 December - for more information, and details on how to apply, click here.
