2019 is full of exciting projects! We have just wrapped up TOMBOLO, which was ourmost ambitious project to date. We will be updating all our photos over the coming weeks, but in the meantime head over to Instgaram to see how it all went.
This year we have also created RES 1-3, a new short-term site-responsive residency series. The first took place in Kerry in March at Lauragh. The second and third will happen at An Port, Donegal in July. Applications are now open so keep reading to find out how to apply.
Finally we have an entirely new site responsive art project called Calafort held in the north west of Ireland. This will round up the season in September. Stay tuned for more details.
We will be announcing open calls for applications for each project so watch this page for updates and sign up to our mailing list.
The RES Series is our new week-long residency programme. The first took place in March in Kerry under the looming Cumeengadhra Hills. The second and third will take place us to the expansive Glencollumkill Pass to a tiny wilderness cottage at the edge of the Donegal Coast.

Tombolo is a site responsive outdoor art residency that will culminate in an expansive public exhibition. It will take place this coming May on Brow Head, Mizen Peninsula, West Cork.
Follow the link to find out more about the project and for information about the open call for submissions.
TOMBOLO WORKSHOP SERIES
The workshop series is a community engagement programme that will run in conjunction with Tombolo 2019. During the exhibition weekend artists will lead a series of creatively engaging workshops open to children and adults.
More details will be announced soon
The wild coast of Donegal is the backdrop for Calafort.
Using a similar approach to TOMBOLO, the project will be an opportunity for another community to engage with visual art within the context of landscape.
More details to be announced soon.
