Pilot Residency Opportunity 


Expressions of Interest are invited by email by 12pm on 27th February 2023 for the first stage of selection for the role of Community Artist Curator in Residence at Cork St Patrick's Parade 2024 which carries a residency budget of €22000. A Residency Information Seminar will take place online on Tuesday 21st February at 2pm. Registrations are welcome via Eventbrite here.

Up to four shortlisted applicants will be provided with a unique insight behind the scenes of the 2023 parade prior to submission of a proposal for the role of Community Artist Curator in Residence at Cork St Patrick's Parade 2024. A stipend of €500 per shortlisted candidate will support Stage 1. Please note that additional limited funding will be available to cover access costs (including childcare fees, if applicable) pending discussion with Cork City Council’s Events Team following the shortlisting process.

The purpose of this pilot opportunity is to support Art in the Public Realm, a strategic priority of Cork City's Arts and Culture Strategy 2022-20226. We hope it will enable us to build on the strong tradition of outdoor arts in Cork City and capacitate the realisation of memorable arts experiences in the public realm, across all art forms and practices, ensuring environmentally sustainable approaches.

Full details and submission guidelines for Stages 1 and 2 can be accessed here.

Please note that funding of €22000 will not be awarded until Stage 2. The deadline for Stage 2 is 17th April 2022. Only those shortlisted via Stage 1 may apply.
