The Arts Council and University College Cork are inviting applications from traditional artists of distinction for the role of Traditional Artist in Residence at UCC for the calendar year 2024.
The Traditional Artist in Residence, based in the Department of Music in the College of Arts, Celtic Studies, and Social Sciences, is designed to provide a traditional artist (traditional musician, singer, dancer, story-teller or practitioner of the oral arts such as agallamh beirte and lúibíní) with a unique opportunity to develop their practice in a university environment while offering students of music the opportunity to engage with a practising artist in a meaningful way during the course of their studies.
The fee to the Traditional Artist in Residence is €30,000, with the Arts Council contributing €20,000 and the university €10,000. UCC will provide the Traditional Artist in Residence with a dedicated space, where they can conduct their own creative practice, within the university.
