Landscape, Ecology & Environment Research Residencies

7 October 2021

Deadline: November 2, 2021

Leitrim Sculpture Centre is awarding up to four Research & Development Residencies to artists during 2021/22. The Landscape, Ecology & Environment Research (LEER) Residency programme provides artists working in the field of contemporary visual arts, with the space, time and support for the research and development of new engagements with landscape, ecology and/or environmental contexts and themes.

Specifically, the programme supports artists wishing to explore new thinking, artistic practices and/or material transformations current within rural, landscape and/or environmental contexts, discourses and settings. It is envisaged that artists will use this work to develop new approaches and methods within their own practice, potentially informing new directions for them and the Centre.

Residency Supports
Successful applicants will each receive a research fee of €2,500 and an additional €1000 for the presentation of short research portfolio and Group Exhibition at the end of the project in the Summer of 2022. Research may take place at the Leitrim Sculpture Centre and in other locations in Ireland of the artists choosing. Research time will involve approximately 20 days work over the course of 6-8  months and successful applicants will receive detailed guidelines as to the form and scope of research material required.
