Business to Arts and Creative Ireland Seeking Host Companies for Artist-in-Residence (AR) Programme

Application deadline: Friday 15 February 2019.

Business to Arts, in partnership with the Creative Ireland Programmeโ€™s National Creativity Fund, are seeking expressions of interest from businesses that would like to develop new (or significantly enhance their existing) CSR activity through the Artist-in-Residence (AR) Programme.

The AR Programme will cover a broad spectrum of activity and opportunities for artists and companies. Host companies will offer artists a working environment or a structure for engagement with their organisationโ€™s CSR Programme and a selected local community organisation.

Up to โ‚ฌ7,500 will be provided for the creation (or enhancement) of three AR Programmes in a Corporate Social Responsibility context. Selected programmes must involve a minimum of eighteen-months of community engagement, staff engagement or work-place creativity activities by the host companies and artists. Priority will be given to AR Programmes where a significant portion of the associated activity occurs in regional areas.

How will Artist(s) be selected for AR Programmes?
This will depend on the selected host companyโ€™s AR Programme objectives and structure. In some cases, they expect an open call to identify the artist(s). In other cases, they expect to significantly enhance an existing programme with an artist/group of artists by supporting new AND expanded activity.
