Open Call - Artist Studio 6-month Residencies

This is an Open Call from Sligo Arts Service funded by Sligo Creative Ireland, seeking four artists to each take up a 6-month Artist Studio Residency at The Model, Sligo, commencing February 2023. In a unique offering, 2 of the residencies will run between the 1st of February – 31st July 2023, and an additional 2 residencies from the 1st of August 2023 – 31st January 2024. These four Artist Residency opportunities come as a response to a The Sligo Culture and Creativity Strategy 2018-2022’s public consultation and RIOT: Sligo conference, which identified a need to support visual artists in securing studio space in Sligo. The four Artist Studio residencies aim to enable Sligo-based artists to develop their studio practice during a 6-month residency. 

Located in Sligo, The Model is a distinctive multi-disciplinary arts organisation that is led by the contemporary visual arts. The Model takes an integrated approach to programming, with a strong focus on contemporary culture and urgent global issues. Sligo Arts Service is a department of Sligo County Council, working in partnership with the Arts Council of Ireland and key stakeholders locally, regionally, and nationally to deliver a high-quality arts service for the people of County Sligo. Fees for the studios will be covered by Sligo County Council Creative Ireland Fund which includes utilities and broadband. Studios are unfurnished, have 24-hour access and measure approx. 7 x 4 metres.  The studios are not residential.
