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.

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 four 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 egg room (194m2). The place is equipped with a solid fuel stove for heating, some basic tools, audio & visual equipment. You can read more about our equipment here.

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 will need to use a car to travel between the studio space and the accommodation so you may need to hire a car. We endeavour to introduce the artist to the local artistic community through meetings and potential artist’s talks.

This residency is not suitable for children.
