Temple Bar Gallery + Studios invites applications from artists for the TBG+S Recent Graduate Residency Award 2023.

Temple Bar Gallery + Studios Recent Graduate Residency is a professional development opportunity aimed at recent graduate artists in Ireland. The Recent Graduate Residency 2023 offers a large free studio for one year, a €5,000 artist bursary, and a variety of institutional supports, to an artist who has graduated from an undergraduate degree in the past three years.

The Recent Graduate Residency assists artists in focusing their studio practices at this crucial point in their careers. It provides an opportunity for emerging artists to develop their careers in Dublin city, within the creative community of Temple Bar Gallery + Studios, and among the professional artists who work there.

In 2023, this opportunity is aimed at all artists who have graduated from a Fine Art (or related) BA/BFA in any recognised university or third level institution in Ireland in the past three years, and Irish artists who have graduated from a Fine Art (or related) BA/BFA outside of Ireland in the past three years (2022/2021/2020).

Temple Bar Gallery + Studios is committed to ensuring that it takes positive policy measures to promote equality of opportunity for all visual artists applying regardless of their gender, sexual orientation, civic or family status, religion, age, disability, socio-economic background, race, or membership of the Travelling community. Therefore, we welcome applications from practicing Visual Artists that are representative of the diversity of Irish society, including, but not limited to any of the characteristics outlined.
