Ireland | Artist residency in Greywood Arts and the National Space Centre

Greywood Arts and the National Space Centre invite expressions of interest from artists working in any visual, installation, or time-based medium who engage with themes of outer space, technology, and speculative futures in their work. 

This six-week residency, from 15 October to 25 November 2022, is an opportunity for an artist whose practice would benefit from observing the workings of a busy satellite ground station campus before immersing themselves in the creative environment of the residency at Greywood Arts

The National Space Centre’s Elfordstown Earthstation, a secure five-acre campus and hub for space tech companies, is not typically open to the public. It is home to the 32m in diameter Big Dish, as well as 37 satellite antennas, beehives, and a fascinating historic space flight collection.

The residency is seeking imaginative proposals investigating big ideas – how can we conceive of the infinite possibilities the universe has to offer? What do our actions in outer space tell us about our relationship to Earth and to each other? 

Applications are encouraged from early career, women-identified, and minority artists.

The award includes:

  • Access to the National Space Centre campus at Elfordstown Earthstation, Midleton Cork, Ireland 
  • Accommodation and studio space at The Residency at Greywood Arts, Killeagh, Cork, Ireland
  • Transportation between Greywood Arts and the NSC
  • 2,000 EUR stipend to be used for travel, per diem and materials at the discretion of the artist

The award includes an opportunity for the selected artist to showcase their research and creative process, and to experiment with installation of work from the residency at the National Space Centre.

Deadline: 19 August 2022
