Centre Cultural Irlandais Artists in Residence announced for 2016 – 2017

08 April 2016

In 2015, Music Network established a new partnership with the Centre Culturel Irlandais in Paris, to enable residencies for Irish musicians at the centre, as a gateway to European touring networks.

The Centre Culturel Irlandais has announced the recipients of its 2016-17 programme of residencies. In 2015, CCI partnered three Irish residencies for the first time, including a music residency in association with Music Network. This year, Music Network is one of seven Irish organisations across a range of artistic disciplines.

The recipient of the music residency in association with Music Network is Barry Donoghue, who will be supported for a one-month residency to further his performance career.

Centre Culturel Irlandais’ annual residency programme offers great opportunities for artists of all disciplines to tap into the resources of the CCI and Paris, as well as being an important means of showcasing Ireland’s dynamic contemporary culture on an international stage.
