Residency for artists in South Dublin County

Arts and Activism

Mother Tongues is pleased to announce the second round of the residency for artists in South Dublin County, themed “Arts and Activism”. The residency is part of the Cultural Diversity programme, an initiative of South Dublin County Council Arts Office, developed and delivered by Mother Tongues with the support of the Cultural Diversity Steering Group, Tallaght. The residency provides a mix of training focused on participatory arts and community engagement, and mentoring. This initiative is open to artists in any stage of their career, who live or work in South Dublin County. Participants will need to be available to attend events in person (in Tallaght) and online, once a month, between January and May 2024.  

Artists will receive an honorarium of €300, and will be able to use the Mother Tongues shared office space in Rua Red, Tallaght.
