Benefits:

  • Studio space with 24 hour access.
  • Access to UCD library.
  • An opportunity for mutual exchange with scientists and other researchers at UCD.
  • Opportunity to participate in the UCD Art In Science programme of talks, exhibitions, and performances.
  • Additional funding of up to euro 1,000 may be applied for, towards public dissemination/exhibition of residency related work.

 

  • What is expected of the artists?

  • The artists will be expected to;

  • prepare a 20-30min talk for the purposes of introduction to your work and proposal to interested scientists and researchers.

  • use the studio space to develop your work on average two days a week, over the course of the year.

  • make connections and engage with other researchers through a mutual exchange of ideas throughout  the year. While formal introductions to relevant researchers are made, many fruitful conversations have occurred between the artists and researchers through chance meetings on the corridor or during coffee breaks, so being on site is an important factor in the process.

  • make parts of the process of your research visible/known to others. ( The way each artist chooses to do this will differ depending on what suits their practice, for example these might include, experimental performances on campus, photographic/video documentation of lab work/meetings, talks/symposia, social media posts etc. )

  • be available for a UCD Open Studio Day and Culture Night (daytime), when the public and wider UCD community will be invited to visit the studios and talk with you about your work.

  • participate in the monthly group meetings/crits for the artists in residence.

  • give a practical workshop related to your work to UCD DrawSoc members.
