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. As we are fully programmed for 2019, we are now inviting expressions of interest for 2020, 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.
