11 March 2021: The National Museum of Ireland (NMI) and the Decade of Centenaries Programme 2012-2023, seeks to engage an Artist-in-Residence to work with the Museum in 2021/2022

All four sites of the National Museum of Ireland
The National Museum of Ireland (NMI) is delighted to participate in an Artist-in-Residence Scheme as part of the Department of Tourism, Culture, Arts, Gaeltacht Sport and Media’s Decade of Centenaries Programme 2021 – 2023.
NMI is committed to delivering programming that is engaged with the communities we serve. We are especially interested in the co creation of programming across all our Museum sites and collections. As part of this scheme, the NMI wishes to engage an artist who wants to work on a collaborative and socially engaged residency over two years (2021 and 2022) 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. It is important to us that the residency ensures meaningful engagement and collaboration between the artist and those communities who share interest and place.  We have information on the NMI website which specifies the objectives of the residency and the application form for applicants:
The NMI is joined by other bodies on this initiative: National Library of Ireland, the National Archives, and the Beyond 2022 Project and the Military Archives. The initiative was launched by Minister Catherine Martin T.D. on Monday 22nd February.  You can also find out more about the residency on the Department’s website:
The deadline for receipt of all applications is close of business on Friday 19thMarch 2021.
