Call for Artist in Residence in Technology and Innovation

DCU in partnership with the Arts Council is offering an exciting and unique residency opportunity to a professional visual artist. The residency will provide an artist with the environment and resources to explore innovative technologies through their practice. It is hosted on DCU Alpha (a commercial innovation campus) within Talent Garden (a digital innovation and co-working hub). This is a unique opportunity for an artist to work within an innovative co-working environment and to engage with a community of researchers, engineers, innovators and entrepreneurs.

The residency is designed for visual artists whose work would be enhanced by an immersive engagement in this context.

DCU’s commitment to this residency is in line with Goal 7 of the university’s Strategic Plan for the period 2017-2022, ‘Talent, Discovery and Transformation’.  It emphasises the university’s commitment to ‘Nurture Creativity and Culture across the University’, in particular, the exploration of possibilities arising at the intersections of the creative arts and technological innovation. The Arts Council’s investment in this residency is part of a commitment to extend the range of contexts in which artists can avail of residency opportunities.
