Resources usually* available to the artist/s:

  • A fee of €3000 per artist
  • A stipend toward mentorship and/or materials (to be agreed with the successful applicant)
  • Space – Linenhall Arts Centre Studio Space (Wi-fi connection included)
  • If the artist/s is working in the Linenhall Arts Centre accommodation can be provided if required
