Closing date: 5pm 15th March 2023

Create and The National Women’s Council (NWC) are delighted to announce this important opportunity for a collaborative socially engaged artist(s) to engage with the membership of the NWC during 2023 via an Artist Residency Award.

This year marks the 50th anniversary of NWC, the largest representative organisation for women and women’s groups in Ireland. Established in 1973 as the Council for the Status of Women, NWC today has over 190 member groups representing women in their diversity from across the island of Ireland and a large and growing community of individual supporters.

This anniversary is an opportunity to celebrate the achievements for women and women’s rights in Ireland and recognise the important, often invisible, contribution of women’s organisations and activists in bringing about this positive change. The NWC are setting out to achieve this through a combination of creative approaches and engagements, discussion and debates as well as celebratory events and moments throughout the year. The Artist Residency Award is a key artistic strand of these activities.

The Residency is intended to run from April 2023 for 9 months and has a fixed artist’s fee of €15,000 (inclusive of insurance and VAT). There is an additional budget of approximately €5,000 to cover expenses, travel, materials and production. The closing date for receipt of Expressions of Interest is 5pm, 15th March 2023.
