Cork County Council Creative Residencies 2021

Cork County Council Library and Arts Service is delighted to announce four new creative residencies for 2021.

Supported by Creative Ireland and the Arts Council, the residencies aim to facilitate access to creativity and culture for adults, children and young people in County Cork. Cork County Council also has a Traditional Musician-in-Residence, Eoin O’Sullivan, who has been integral in the development of the Sliabh Luachra Music Trail, in partnership with Kerry County and Limerick City and County Councils.

  • The Historian-in-Residence will be invited to connect with communities through local history and heritage, working in collaboration to showcase and celebrate Corks rich past.
  • The Creative Producer-in-Residence scheme invites a creative worker in any arts or cultural form to work collaboratively with communities.
  • The Filmmaker-in-Residence will work alongside the successful First Cut Film Festival, supporting young people to tell their stories through film and animation.
  • The Writer-in-Residence will facilitate writing workshops and work with the libraries to develop writing groups, as well as developing an engaging programme of activities with other writers.

The Historian-in-Residence and Creative Producer-in-Residence will both begin in June, with the Writer-in-Residence and Filmmaker-in-Residence beginning in September.

All information and application forms are available here.

For queries relating to the residencies, please email or call 0214285995.

The deadline for applications for all four residencies is 5pm on Friday 16th April 2021.
