Tyrone Guthrie Centre Bursary

Ards and North Down Arts is offering one week residencies to the Tyrone Guthrie Centre, Annaghmakerrig in County Monaghan to practitioners in all art forms who are currently based in the Ards and North Down Borough.

The Lord Dunleath and Sir James Kilfedder Bursaries, which offer residencies at the centre in Annaghmakerrig, aim to assist and encourage both established and emerging practitioners and to give them an opportunity to work intensively on a 'project' alongside others in a very unique environment. The practitioners will be selected based upon their previous achievements and the project they intend to undertake during their residency.

The selected Artist Residency should take place within 12 months of receipt of their award.


Applications for the Tyrone Guthrie Centre Bursary 2020/21 will be available from 9 January 2020.


DEADLINE: Monday 24 February, 12noon
