As IMMA enters its 30th Birthday celebration, we are excited to use this polemic time to offer the Museum’s site, it’s history and our collective relationship to an evolving future as a programming catalyst for resident artists. IMMA welcomes applications from artists and cultural practitioners nationwide as to how the onsite studios can be an expanding base for research and engagements through sited activities and interventions in 2021.

This year IMMA will bring a major part of it’s programming outdoors, a central component to this will be IMMA’s ‘Studio Street’ focusing on practices emerging from IMMA’s Residency to activate the wide open space with performances, workshops, pop up exhibitions, readings, interventions and digital content. This year IMMA is prioritising public processes to activate the full scope of the Museum grounds in creative and meaningful ways. The residency will connect the Museum community, affiliated mentors and residents as a gathering of co-thinkers who will work together in adaptable, radical and dynamic ways to reignite the possibilities for creative continuity and inclusivity in these unique and challenging times. Core values for the programme are care and repair, civic agency, play, inclusivity, community, ecologies, and the future.

Residencies will run from one to nine months, commencing from April 2021. Artists and cultural producers can become a part of the fabric of the site, to work together with IMMA’s team and our collective communities reimagining how IMMA can be relevant both locally and internationally. Together, let’s figure out where we go, and how we grow, from here.

Residents will be provided with free studio space and a monthly bursary. Once selected, participating artists and producers will work with the IMMA staff and co-thinkers to identify ways to connect their work, interests, and expertise with site programming.

Important Note: On this occasion IMMA will only accept applications from artists resident in Ireland for at least one year prior to the application deadline.
