Residency Submissions


Uillinn: West Cork Arts Centre offers Artist in Residence studio opportunities to artists. Artists are invited to apply for an opportunity to research and develop their practices and to engage in dialogue with Uillinn, other organisations in Cork, the local community and general public.
This is a non-accommodation residency. Currently West Cork Arts Centre does not offer a stipend for the duration of a residency. We recommend that artists apply to their own Arts Councils, Local Authorities etc to source funding for accommodation, travel and expenses. Please note that we are fully programmed for 2021. We are considering submissions for 2022. See below for details on submissions. 

- The Artists' Studios
The three Artists' Studios are located on Level 2 of Uillinn, West Cork Arts Centre's new arts building, and range in size from 18.2 metres square to 21.2 metres square. They are interconnecting work spaces, with north facing roof lights, that can be closed off from each other. Each studio is equipped with heating facilities, desk/work bench and wireless internet. Weekend and evening access can be facilitated.

Uillinn provides a vibrant creative hub an extensive programme of exhibitions and events. There is a strong emphasis on making connections and networking, even in these most challenging times we are seeking safe and creative ways to remain connected.

Priority is given to:

  • to artists who show a strong commitment to public and audiences with a COVID19 considered approach
  • While COVID19 restrictions are in place, priority will also be given to artists residing or with residence in the County.

Residencies can vary in length, though out the year from 5 to 20 days, in blocks or in spread out. To find out more we recommend you browse through previous residencies here
