I am delighted to announce that I have been awarded a residential studio at The Firestation Artists’ Studios. This residency will begin in 2015.
Fire Station provides subsidised combined living and working studios for Irish and international artists, large scale sculpture workshop facilities and training opportunities for artists. The Fire Station training programme has expanded to include digital and film training and they continue to host technical training and master classes which incorporate critical reflection – this is something I am really looking forward to.
A key policy of the Fire Station is to contribute to the debate on collaborative and socially engaged arts practice, through a commissioning process that incorporates critique.
