Draíocht continues its INCUBATE 2019 Studio Residency programme for emerging and early-career visual artists, offering them time and space to research, test new ideas and develop new work. 

15 July - 23 August 2019  
We are delighted to announce Sarah Mooney as the winner of Draíocht’s Creative Digital Media Graduate Award 2019 in association with TU Dublin Creative Digital Media Blanchardstown Campus.

The Creative Digital Media Graduate Award 2019 is open to this year’s graduating students from the Creative Digital Media Degree Programme and was selected by Draíocht’s Director Emer McGowan and Curator Sharon Murphy. The Award is offered as part of Draíocht’s INCUBATE programme, which supports young and emerging artists. This includes on-going series of studio-based residencies at Draíocht and opportunities to exhibit new work as part of Draíocht’s annual summer exhibition, PLATFORM and bespoke mentoring, time and space to research and test new idea in a dedicated studio environment and/or develop and present new work in the Gallery context.

Sarah Mooney is an emerging creative digital media artist and a prominent and well established DJ based in Dublin. Her award winning graduate work 'Serenity' is an installation exploring mental health and states of mind in Ireland’s club culture through an immersive, mixed media, audio-visual experience. Sarah will further develop this work for site specific public contexts, in particular across Ireland’s festival scene through her 6-week INCUBATE studio residency at Draíocht this Summer.
