Open Call: We Only Want the Earth Residency

Posted: 23 March, 2022

A4 Sounds in partnership with Create: National Development Agency for Collaborative Arts and Transgender Equality Network Ireland (TENI) invite applications from trans, nonbinary, and gender nonconforming artists for a four-month residency award as part of the We Only Want the Earth 2022 programme.

The residency will run from May to October 2022. The residency opportunity aims to support an artist based in Ireland to develop their arts practice.

Deadline: 5pm, Monday 11th April 2022.

A central aim of the We Only Want the Earth programme is to give material support and a platform to artists who are often ignored, or who are spoken about rather than listened to. As part of meeting this aim, this 6-month residency award will support a trans, nonbinary, and/or gender nonconforming artist to develop and exhibit a body of work, and will provide the selected artist with an opportunity to make contacts and identify resources that might help them to further develop their artistic practice.

Please note that the artist is free to work on any topic of their choosing; there is no requirement that the work deal with issues of gender identity.

Proposals must respond to the theme ‘We Only Want the Earth’.

We invite radical, risk taking, bold, mischievous, and political proposals. This is a visual arts award, but we welcome proposals from artists with multidisciplinary approaches where the proposed outcomes can be disseminated in visual ways.

We are keen to hear from artists who use a wide range of approaches to explore their ideas; including but not limited to: socially engaged, collaboration with communities, collaboration with artists, protest, organizing, writing, sound, conversation, food, performance, video, media, sculpture, research, installation and print.
