The SPACE Programme 2011

Deadline: 10 January 2011
Open to: artists and individuals from all over the world
Prize: chosen participants will receive a stipend of €1,000

The programme has been created by Ireland’s The Performance Corporation with support from The Arts Council, Kildare County Council, OPW and Irish Landmark Trust.

This unique international artists residency offers an opportunity for artists of all disciplines to collaborate, experiment and innovate in an inspiring environment. The residency which takes place over a two-week period at Castletown House Co. Kildare is an open-ended process hosted by The Performance Corporation. The programme facilitates artists from diverse backgrounds to collaborate and explore their artistic process while removing the pressure to come up with an end product.

The SPACE Programme will run from 7th – 18th March, 2011. The chosen participants will receive a stipend of €1,000 for their participation to cover their costs. Participants are selected by a panel of leading arts practitioners following a wide-ranging submission process. Submissions are welcome from Irish and International practitioners in all disciplines.

Applications are also welcome from artists who applied in previous years and were unsuccessful due to the high demand.
