The National Museum of Ireland (NMI), in partnership with the Department of Tourism, Culture, Arts, Gaeltacht, Sport and Media and the Decade of Centenaries Programme 2012-2023, seeks to engage an Artist-in-Residence to work with the Museum in 2021/2022.

The over-arching purpose of this scheme is to invite artists to reflect on the collections of one of five partners and the themes of the Decade of Centenaries Programme. Artists are called to create new and imaginative ways to engage the public with these collections. The artist's collaboration with the selected partner should culminate in new and imaginative work. 


The National Museum of Ireland aims to engage an artist who wants to work on a collaborative and socially engaged residency over two years where they will co-create work of depth and ambition with communities, taking inspiration from the NMI collections and the buildings they are housed in, as they relate to the Decade of Centenaries.
