Open call for RESONATE: Music Network Artist Residencies

Completed applications must be submitted by 2 pm, Thursday 24 June 2021.

Music Network is inviting professional musicians with a strong track record in music performance to apply for one of six new artist residencies presented 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).

Each of the six RESONATE residencies will provide a grant of €6,000 – €10,000 to enable musicians to devote time to the creation of new work and to facilitate new creative partnerships. The programme also provides opportunities to engage audiences by showcasing and performing new material during a live concert performance and on digital platforms.

Individual musicians with a strong track record in music performance, who are currently living in the Republic of Ireland, are invited to apply. Applications are welcome from musicians performing in a range of genres either as solo artists or on behalf of existing groups or new collaborations. Cross-genre and cross-art form collaborations (with music as a core element) are also welcome.

Music Network is committed to equity and inclusion, and particularly welcomes applications from under-represented musicians, including but not limited to musicians of colour, musicians with disabilities, Traveller musicians and LGBTQ+ musicians.

Music Network will present a webinar on the RESONATE programme with a Q&A session on Tuesday 8 June at 11 am. Musicians wishing to attend this webinar can book a place HERE.
