Music Network Artist Residency
Expressions of Interest should be submitted by no later than 2pm, Friday 20th April 2018
The Music Network Artist Residency Programme has been developed to provide the selected musician with access to resources to curate a 6-date concert series to take place within a 6 – 9 month timeframe (commencing in Autumn 2018) in collaboration with Music Network, Mermaid Arts Centre and Wicklow County Council Arts Office. It is intended that this programme will positively intersect with local authority arts development plans and venues’ programming priorities and potentially, the work of a range of community music groups.
We are inviting professional musicians, working primarily in classical, jazz/improvised or traditional music who have a strong track record in music performance and a clear commitment to audience development to submit an Expression of Interest in the Programme.
Initiated by Music Network in 2015, and developed in partnership with Triskel Christchurch and supported by Cork City Council, the Music Network Artist Residency pilot involved a concert programme with Irish and international musicians of renown curated by pianist Phil Ware, as well as a series of outreach initiatives and musician mentorships involving a selected group of students from CIT Cork School of Music and tutors from Music Generation Cork City. In 2017 the programme was developed in collaboration with Wexford County Council Arts Office and the National Opera House, Wexford and was curated by guitarist Redmond O’Toole. In conjunction with the concert series, an extensive Learning and Participation programme was developed that engaged with a range of community groups.
