Applications are now invited for the Artist and Youth Work Residency Scheme programme for projects commencing in September 2017. The scheme is managed by the National Youth Council of Ireland on behalf of the Arts Council and the Department of Children and Youth Affairs by whom it is jointly funded.
The scheme is designed to promote innovative partnerships between youth groups, artists and (where relevant) arts organisations. A residency may take the form of an artist in residence in a youth work setting and/or a youth group in residence in an arts setting.
There are two strands to the artist and youth work residency scheme. Strand 1 – development; and Strand 2 – full residency.
Strand 1 – development (€1500, with potential to apply for a further €3500)
This strand is intended to support an organisation or artist to work with proposed partners to develop a collaborative residency programme. Successful applicants for Strand 1 will have the opportunity to submit a follow-up proposal within three months of receiving their award for funding to follow through on the proposed programme.
Strand 2- full residency (€5000)
This strand is intended to support residency programmes that have been jointly developed by the partners involved (i.e. the artist, youth group and any other key partner organisation) and that fully meet the criteria for the award.
