Satellite Artist Residency
In collaboration with The Mothership Project, we are thrilled to announce Satellite, an artist residency for Autumn, 2018 designed specifically for parenting artists in Ireland. Through an open call, parenting artists will be offered time and space at our studios to develop new work, progress existing work or get back to practice after taking time out to have children. Satellite will offer childcare, accommodation and a variety of time slots to artists who wish to take time out to focus on their practice. We will tailor the residency to the needs of the artist and their family.
The Mothership Project is a network of parenting artists in Ireland who’s aim is to support parenting artists in the development of their practice and encourage arts organisations to make the art world a more inclusive place for artists with children. Since 2013, The Mothership has hosted workshops and discussions on issues facing parenting artists such as visibility, time, money and precarity, being a parenting artist in a reputational economy, supports and childcare. The Mothership has also hosted show & tell events and reading groups around the theoretical underpinnings of this equality and solidarity based project.

The deadline for these applications will be Sunday, April 29th at 12 midnight. ‘Satellite’ applications will be reviewed by an independent panel. Email applications only.
