About the Temple Bar Gallery + Studios 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 fourth year, the residency offers a 12 month studio at TBG+S  with added professional development supports. 

The residency, beginning in Spring 2017, provides a large free studio for one year, in addition to a €1,000 stipend, €500 international travel bursary, a variety of institutional supports including mentoring and a programme of visiting curators’ visits.

The opportunity is aimed specifically at Irish artists who have graduated from a BA/BFA in Fine Art in any recognised university in Ireland or abroad in the past three years. Graduating classes of 2014, 2015 and 2016 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. This opportunity is aimed at artists who have not yet completed an MA programme in fine art, and so those currently studying for or who completed their MA are uneligable to apply. 

The purpose of the Temple Bar Gallery + Studios Recent Graduate Residency is to assist graduate artists in focussing their studio practices at this crucial point in their careers. It is also to encourage emerging artists to develop their practices within the creative community of TBG+S and among the professional artists who work in the TBG+S building.

The successful applicant for the graduate studio award will have a strong and confident emerging studio practice and will be able to articulate why and how they feel they would benefit from the opportunity.
