Aras Eanna is delighted to announce two artist residencies on the beautiful island of Inis Oirr early in the new year.

Applications are open to artists who are based in the Gaeltacht, from any art form.

The two residencies will begin on January 30, 2022 and continue until March 12, giving artists a fabulous opportunity to spend six weeks on our Gaeltacht island.

Accommodation will be provided in an artists’ house on the island and studio space will also be available at Aras Eanna.

  • Stipend of €2,750 for each artist
  • The use of equipment at Aras Eanna to document work carried out during the time on the the island.
  • Publicity via the Aras Eanna blogs and social media channels.
