IMMA's residency provides opportunities for artists, curators, critical writers and art professionals to research and develop their practices, it supports both emerging and established professionals, working in any medium by application or invitation and is open to Irish and international applicants.

The residency is a unique programme which is submerged in the urban context of contemporary Irish culture, housed and mentored onsite at the Irish Museum of Modern Art, this prime location offers a natural catalyst for contemporary creativity and dialogue. The Museum’s Collection, Exhibitions, Education and Community Programmes, National Programme, Talks and Lectures, and 17th-century architecture and grounds all provide a dynamic starting point for participants to expand and explore their studio practice and potentially develop new avenues of research where IMMA residents can tap into the many resources available to them.
