Artist-in-residence position at Grand Canal

Trinity College is delighted to announce a 12-month part-time artist-in-residence position within the Trinity Technology & Enterprise Centre at Grand Canal, commencing in March 2020. Applications are now open for the position.

The aim is to enable the artist to develop new work through a collaborative process of engagement with communities which should include local residents, community groups and school children and may also include technology and creative start-ups and businesses. Over the next number of years, the site will transition towards a new campus at the heart of the proposed Grand Canal Innovation District (GCID). The GCID will act as a connector for indigenous and multinational companies, academic researchers from both Irish and international universities, venture capitalists and start-ups as well as members of the local community. The new campus will have a focus on technology and creative arts, housing researchers, industry and start-ups, as well as providing a welcoming space and opportunities for local residents.

The artist-in-residence will be expected to produce new work, engage with the history and culture of the area and site, as well as considering the proposed plans for development. It is intended that this artist-in-residence position will be the beginning of a long-term commitment to integrating art into the campus and wider innovation district. Submissions are welcome from artists working in any art form.
