Music Network announces an open call for RESONATE, six new artist residencies in venues around Ireland.

Please note that the deadline for receipt of applications is 2 pm, Thursday 11th May 2023.

Music Network and glór invite applications from professional musicians for the RESONATE artist residency programme which provides support for professional musicians with a strong track record in music performance to develop new work and/or collaborations.

The residency is one of six opportunities across the country as part of RESONATE 2023, Music Network’s artist residency programme in partnership with glór (Ennis), Ionad Cultúrtha (Baile Mhúirne), The National Opera House (Wexford), Triskel Arts Centre (Cork City), The Dock (Carrick-On-Shannon) and Regional Cultural Centre (Letterkenny).

Now in its 3rd year, the residency provides a grant of €6,000 to enable a musician/s to devote time to the creation of new work, in addition to a range of in-kind supports from both Music Network and glór along with opportunities for artists to showcase their work through live performance and digital updates.

Audiences will also have an opportunity to engage with our resident musicians at a public performance in glór in November/December.

The residency is open to musicians of professional performing standard working in any genre of music. Applicants must be resident in the Republic of Ireland and be aged 18 or over. Applicants may apply as solo artists, on behalf of an existing group or ensemble, or for a new collaboration.
