There are three national unlocked residencies available from the 30th July to 23rd November 2018 (After September 9th the space is shared.). Each residency is suitable for Irish artists/companies and includes: free use of the IACC, a rigger to help with the get in/get out, and €1200 in funding to pay for a mentor and their expenses. You will need to cover your own expenses, but we can supply letters of support to help you get funding elsewhere. Priority will be given to proposals that explain clearly how the residency would impact the artist’s/company’s practice and the Irish circus community.
Please submit a one-page proposal outlining what you’d like to achieve in the residency, which dates suit you best (usually one week), and who your chosen mentor/coach/director is. Please also include a CV and link to online examples of your work. Application deadline : Friday 4th May 2018. Successful companies will be notified the week of Wednesday 9th May. Funded by the Arts Council.
