New call out for Applications for 2018

We were delighted with the response to our call out for applications in 2017 for our week long residency, funded by Dublin City Council. The residency was awarded to Cian McLoughlin and we look forward to welcoming him to the studio in the next few weeks. We are happy to announce that Dublin City Council have funded the residency again in 2018 and we are now making the call out for applications for this residency, to be held between June and September of this year. The deadline for applications is Friday 20th April at 4pm. Here are the details: 

As part of an ongoing commitment to professional artists, Graphic Studio Dublin in association with Dublin City Council is offering a fine art print residency. This residency offers to an emerging or established artist, who is interested in exploring print processes, the opportunity to make a fine art print with a printmaker at Graphic Studio Dublin. The week-long residency will provide an ideal environment for the development of a creative project in printmaking and an opportunity to network with other artists.

The professional aims and objectives of the successful candidate will be continually assessed during the residency to ensure the artist gains the maximum benefit from their time. The collaborative nature of the residency, and the collective studio environment will be of enormous assistance to the artist in achieving his/her goals.

The applicant should have been brought up in, educated in or currently live in the Dublin City Council area. A map of this area can be found on the Dublin City Council website here: http://www.dublincity.ie/main-menu-your-council/your-area
