Open call for RESONATE: Music Network Artist Residencies

Monday May 24, 2021

Deadline: Thursday 24 June 2021, 2pm
glór | Ionad Cultúrtha | National Opera House | Triskel Arts Centre | The Dock | Regional Cultural Centre

Professional musicians with a strong track record in music performance are invited to apply for one of six new artist residencies.

RESONATE: Music Network Artist Residencies are presented in partnership with glór (Ennis), Ionad Cultúrtha (Baile Mhúirne), The National Opera House (Wexford), Triskel Arts Centre (Cork City), The Dock (Carrick-on-Shannon) and Regional Cultural Centre (Letterkenny).

Each of the six RESONATE residencies will provide a grant of €6,000 – €10,000 to enable musicians to devote time to the creation of new work and to facilitate new creative partnerships. The programme also provides opportunities to engage audiences by showcasing and performing new material during a live concert performance and on digital platforms.

Individual musicians with a strong track record in music performance, who are currently living in the Republic of Ireland, are invited to apply. Applications are welcome from musicians performing in a range of genres either as solo artists or on behalf of existing groups or new collaborations. Cross-genre and cross-art form collaborations (with music as a core element) are also welcome.

Music Network is committed to equity and inclusion, and particularly welcomes applications from under-represented musicians, including but not limited to musicians of colour, musicians with disabilities, Traveller musicians and LGBTQ+ musicians.
