Musicians with a strong track record in music performance, who are currently living in the Republic of Ireland, are invited to apply.
Music Network is inviting professional musicians with a strong track record in music performance to apply for one of the six new RESONATE: Music Network Artist Residencies, in partnership with glór (Ennis), Ionad Cultúrtha (Baile Mhúirne), The National Opera House (Wexford), Triskel Arts Centre (Cork City), The Dock (Carrick-on-Shannon) and Regional Cultural Centre (Letterkenny).
This year’s programme will provide a grant of €8,000 to each of the six appointed musicians, to facilitate the creation of new work and creative partnerships. Audiences around the country will have opportunities to enjoy the new material created during each of the residencies through live concert performances and online content.
“Music Network is very pleased to be offering RESONATE together with our partners for a second consecutive year," comments Music Network’s CEO Sharon Rollston. "RESONATE is the most extensive of our musician residency programmes, and will provide the selected musicians with the necessary time, space and income needed to develop exciting new work which will be premiered this Autumn.”
Individual musicians with a strong track record in music performance, who are currently living in the Republic of Ireland, are invited to apply. Applications are welcome from musicians performing in a range of genres, either as solo artists or on behalf of existing groups or new collaborations. Cross-genre and cross-artform collaborations (with music as a core element) are also welcome.
Music Network is committed to equity and inclusion, and particularly welcomes applications from under-represented musicians, including but not limited to musicians of colour, musicians with disabilities, Traveller musicians and LGBTQ+ musicians.
Music Network will present a webinar on the RESONATE programme with a Q&A session on Wednesday, April 27, at 11am. Those wishing to attend this webinar – advance registration is essential – can book a place here. A recording of the webinar will also be made available on Music Network's website and social media channels from April 28.
The deadline for receipt of applications for the RESONATE artist residency programme is 2pm on Thursday May 12, 2022. To apply, and for more information, see here.
