Applications for residency are made by emailing a pdf to the address The pdf should include the following:

  • Your proposal for your residency period (max. A4)
  • CV
  • Artist’s statement
  • Eight samples of recent work, either as images or links.

Please include a letter of reference in the email. We prioritise proposals which explore intersections between science and art or which respond to the unique environment at the facility.

Residencies take place over periods of between two and six weeks. The resident artist has the use of a 14.4 m2 private space as well as access to 135 m2 shared studio space. The place is equipped with a solid fuel stove for heating and some basic tools. We provide the artist with studio space and accommodation. The artist is responsible for their own travel to, from and around Connemara, and for transportation of their own materials and artwork home. You may need to hire a car, in which case Budget Car Hire offers our residents a 15% discount. We endeavour to introduce the artist to the local artistic community through meetings and potential artist’s talks.
