Wexford County Council Arts Department, in partnership with Wexford Arts Centre and the Arts Council, is seeking applications from primary schools and visual artists to participate in the Living Arts Project commencing in October 2018.
Under this unique and very successful scheme, selected primary schools have the opportunity to host an artist in residence during the school year.
Four Wexford-based artists will be selected and partnered with schools to create a body of work over the school year. The residency will prioritise development of the artist’s own work within the project and encourage competent engaging work from the pupils. It also offers teachers an opportunity to observe and learn creative practices and thought processes for use in the classroom.
A total of four paid assistant artist positions are also available. A mentoring session will be scheduled at the end of each residency for interns to get advice on their own practice. The successful applicants must be flexible in terms of contact hours.
For further information on the Living Arts Project and how to apply please email email@example.com or log on to http://www.wexfordartscentre.ie/application-process-2018.html.
Deadline for expressions of interest is 4pm Thursday 10th May 2018
