Open Call: Artist in Residence

Published: Tuesday, 03 March, 2020

UCD Earth Institute, in partnership with Dún Laoghaire-Rathdown County Council, are delighted to announce a new residency at UCD Parity Studios, with the aim of addressing the unprecedencted loss of biodiversity in Ireland. This is a key challenge in Creating a Sustainable Global Society, one of the four strategic themes underpinning UCD's 2020-2024 Strategy. 

Dún Laoghaire-Rathdown County is a partly-urban and partly-rural environment framed by some of the most beautiful natural heritage sites on the island – extending from the shoreline of Dublin Bay to the uplands that form the borders with County Wicklow and South Dublin. In partnering with the Council, UCD Earth Institute aims to highlight the importance of sustainably managing biodiversity, which presents its own challenges to the Council, local groups, businesses and educational institutions as well as those who live in the county.

Proposals are welcome from visual artists, working in any medium, who wish to contribute to the awareness of biodiversity and its importance in Dún Laoghaire-Rathdown County Council through the lens of artistic practice. For further information and details of how to apply, please visit:
