Visual artists' workspaces in Ireland - A new approach (DOC, 0.18 MB) Following discussion with visual artists' studio groups and residential facilities as part of the Partnership for the Arts consultation process, the need for a clear Arts Council policy in support of artists' workspaces was identified. The Council commissioned a Review of Artists' Workspaces in Ireland to provide information on visual artists' workspaces and to make suggestions on how the Arts Council might offer supports to these spaces in the future. As an outcome of the review, the Council agreed to consider a new studio policy. This paper outlines the new policy approach..20108
