Open Call | Roscommon Visual Artists’ Forum Award 2018

Deadline for applications: 30 October, 5pm

The Roscommon Visual Artists Forum supported by Roscommon County Council arts office and Roscommon Arts Centre was established to provide visual artists based in or from the county with a platform to develop their practice through professional training, events, talks and exhibitions while also providing access to information and opportunities from beyond the region.

In response to the needs and requirements of the artists in the county, resident curator Linda Shevlin developed the Roscommon Visual Artists Forum Award.

The 2018 award will focus on recent graduates or artists in the early stages of their careers (maximum 3 years practicing). With a view to extending opportunities to artists, groups or collectives with a connection to County Roscommon the award will facilitate the realization of an exhibition in 2018 at a venue OUTSIDE the County.
The selected artist will be supported with a production budget of €2000 plus the organisational and curatorial support of the Roscommon Arts Centre curator, Linda Shevlin. Applicants must also demonstrate that the project can be realised within the specified budget and timeframe.

The 2018 award will be selected by Oonagh Young, director of the Oonagh Young Gallery, Dublin.
