The Arts Council is partnering with a number of institutions providing Initial Teacher Education for primary school teachers in Ireland to support artists-in-residence across various disciplines, beginning in September 2017.
The aims of the residencies are to:
- provide opportunities for artists to develop their skills and experience in education settings, and to develop their artistic work in a collaborative and supportive environment
- provide future teachers with opportunities to engage meaningfully with the arts as part of their initial teacher education
- support future teachers to develop the skills and confidence to facilitate meaningful arts experiences for their students, and to champion the arts in schools
Please note the following opportunities for artists in residence at Mary Immaculate College, Limerick see http://www.mic.ul.ie/latestnews/Pages/ArtistinResidencies.aspx
For information on other residencies and opportunities for artists in education settings, please visit www.artsineducation.ie and make sure to sign up for the Arts in Education newsletter (available on that website) for monthly updates.
