TBG+S Recent Graduate Residency

TBG+S Recent Graduate Residency

Temple Bar Gallery + Studios Recent Graduate Residency is a professional development opportunity aimed at recent graduate artists in Ireland. Now in its sixth year, the Residency offers a free studio for one year, a €1,500 stipend, €500 international travel bursary and a variety of institutional supports.

The purpose of the Temple Bar Gallery + Studios Recent Graduate Residency is to assist recently graduated artists in focusing their studio practices at this crucial point in their careers. It provides an opportunity for a recent graduate to develop their work in a highly-regarded city centre studio complex, participate with the creative community of TBG+S and with the professional artists, public audiences and supporters who engage with our organisation.

This opportunity is aimed specifically at artists who have graduated from a BA/BFA in Fine Art in any recognised university or third level institution in Ireland in the past three years, OR Irish artists who have graduated from a non-Irish BA/BFA in Fine Art in the past three years. Graduating classes of 2019, 2018 or 2017 are eligible to apply. The successful candidate will either be currently, based in Ireland or intending to return to live and work in Ireland during the period of the award.
