Emerging Irish Artist Residency Award

Eligibility: This award is open to emerging visual artists who reside in Ireland.  As a key element of this award is having the time and space to develop work, as well as building community within the residency and the following group exhibition, we ask that awardees be able to commit to being in the Burren for the duration of the residency (emergencies and special exceptions allowed).
