Space Waste Residency

Share

Category:

Country:

Eligibility:

A one-month sculpture residency at Greywood Arts in partnership with the National Space Centre and supported by Cork County Council. 

We are seeking expressions of interest from artists with a sculpture, three-dimensional or multi-disciplinary practice who are interested in examining questions arising around the waste produced by the acceleration of technology. It is an opportunity for an artist to explore the impact of human interactions with space and how we could move forward into the future. What are the implications of sending satellites and other hardware into space? Whose responsibility is it to regulate this and to manage space debris? 

The residency is an exciting invitation for an artist to reimagine and re-purpose technological space components that cannot be recycled. The artist will collect materials from the National Space Centre and observe the workings of a busy ground station before immersing themselves in the creative environment at Greywood. The project concludes with an exhibition and discussion at the National Space Centre in early December to showcase the work created during the residency and kick of the NSC’s 10th birthday celebrations. 

The National Space Centre is set to share space communications components including circuit boards, assemblies and data subframes with the artist, as well as preserved panels from their recently dismantled 11-metre EU-5B4 dish.

“This is a pivotal time in space exploration,” explained NSC CEO Rory Fitzpatrick. “We’re looking at manned Martian exploration in the near future, while Jeff Bezos and Richard Branson have launched space tourism as a viable industry. At the same time, there are more than 125 million pieces of space garbage orbiting our planet. It’s an ideal moment to examine questions around our responsibility to live sustainably not only on Earth, but beyond it.”

UNEXPECTED SPACES PUBLIC ART RESIDENCY 2020

Calling artists with a public art practice! 

Greywood Arts is awarding a four week residency 22 August – 20 September to support development of a public art project in the rural East Cork village of Killeagh. The residency provides accommodation, workspace, project support and a stipend of €1,500 to a visual, performing, multi-disciplinary or other genre of practicing artist whose project is experienced in the public realm. This year, the residency precedes Ireland’s nationwide Culture Night (September 18th) and we hope to celebrate the public art project that evening.

Unexpected Spaces aims to support an artist working in the public sphere while increasing access to art in the community of Killeagh. The artwork created during the residency should be situated or presented in the public sphere, or should be experienced from a public space. The public art residency is one component of the project, which will also offer public art themed workshops for different community groups. Unexpected Spaces is made possible by support from Cork County Council. Stipend to cover materials and living expenses, allocated at the discretion of the artist. 

This year, Unexpected Spaces will tie into Culture Night, Ireland’s annual all-island public event that celebrates culture, creativity and the arts on Friday, 18th September. https://culturenight.ie/

While we are completely open regarding the theme, topic and medium, the project should be responsive to the setting and context of the village.

Eligibility:

Midterm Break Family Residency

A new opportunity for artists and writers with children during the Irish midterm break February 15-22nd 2020.

We know many artist’s are parents, too. The logistics and cost of child care can make residencies a challenge – and many residencies don’t even allow children. We wanted to create an affordable week away where kids can be themselves and parents can get some much needed studio time.

Two subsidised residencies will be awarded, one to a writer and one to a visual artist.

 

Each recipient will receive:

  • Accommodation for their family and themselves over 2 bedrooms at a reduced rate.
  • Private workspace – artist studio or writer’s den.
  • Children-in-residence can attend three art/craft workshops during the week (ideal for primary school age students.
  • A work-in-progress sharing Friday February 21st.
