Open Call – 2021 Graduate Residency Award

Ormond Art Studios are delighted to be inviting applications for our 2021 Graduate Residency Award!

After adapting our Graduate Residency Award last year due to COVID-19, we intend to return to our previous format, health guidelines and restrictions permitting. The Ormond Art Studios Graduate Award will include a studio residency and peer mentoring in Ormond Art Studios for the month of September 2021 and will culminate in a solo exhibition in the Ormond Project Space. (If anything changes in regards to the health guidelines and restrictions, the Graduate Residency may be adapted to suit an online orientated format as per our 2020 Award. The recipient will be informed in advance if such a change occurs.)

Ormond Art Studios is an artist-led initiative in Dublin city and is a platform for emerging visual artists. It supports the development of arts practice through affordable studio provision, critical discourse and space for events, residencies and exhibitions. The physical studios consists of eight individual artist's spaces along with a separate area that serves as the Project Space. The Project Space offers scope for work on a larger scale, embodied practice and experimentation. It is in this space that feedback sessions, events and exhibitions happen. We believe that critical discourse is hugely beneficial to developing a professional arts practice and essential to a dynamic arts community. Ormond Art Studios encourages members to open up their practise to peer critique and facilitates lively feedback sessions, residencies, and information/skills sharing initiatives. We believe in collaboration and connect with other creative initiatives to develop a network of support for artist‐led endeavours in Dublin and beyond. For more information please contact us at ormondartists@gmail.com Ormond Art Studios is kindly supported by the Arts Council of Ireland.
