Studio Incubation Residencies For Artists 2017/2018

January 9, 2017

Draíocht has recently created a new strategic framework for the visual arts for the next three years which includes the following features:

- a curated approach to programming the visual arts
- a commitment to ensure that visual arts programming within Draíocht (or led by it) takes close cognisance of the demography of Dublin 15 and the social context within which we work
- an openness to the changing nature of the visual arts and to increased inter- disciplinary practice.

The programme will be officially launched in Spring 2017 when full details will be announced. For now, read a brief outline from Sharon Murphy, Draíocht’s Curator-in-Residence 2017 and contact Sharon on for further information.

Studio Incubation Residencies For Artists 2017/2018
We are delighted to announce five short-term incubation residencies at Draíocht Studio for emerging artists whose practice will embody and enrich our ‘new directions’ vision. Priority will be given to young and emerging artists who wish to research and develop new work and whose interests lie in one or more of the following areas: interdisciplinary practice; visual culture and new technologies; socially engaged and collaborative practices; visual arts practice for children and young people.

Artists will have free use of Draíocht’s Studio for a period of 5-8 weeks and will be paid an honorarium and will be able to avail of mentoring from the Curator in Residence, the Artist in Residence and members of the Draíocht team as required.
