Darkroom Facility at Backwater Artists Group, Cork

Application deadline: Friday 26 October, 5.00pm.

Backwater Artists Group have launched a new darkroom facility on the 2nd floor of the Wandesford Quay facility. Initiated, built and administrated by studio member, visual artist and photographer Darn Thorn, this new resource is designed not only to meet the needs of lens-based artists at Backwater Artists Group, but to also address the deficit of darkroom facilities in Cork City following the closure of other studios in recent years.

Backwater Artist Group invite submissions for users of the new darkroom and associated digital production facility. There is a charge of €45 per month for 12 hours per week (2 x 6 hour slots). Associate users will provide their own materials and chemicals. Storage and disposal of chemicals will be included.

Full details of the terms and conditions of associate usage along and the submission form are available on the Backwater Artists Group website:
