Music Network is delighted to announce the Music Network Artist Residency 2018, an exciting opportunity for professional performing musicians.  The Residency aims to provide a musician with funding in order to plan and deliver a series of concerts commencing in Autumn 2018, with integrated audience development components, in partnership with Wicklow County Council Arts Office and Mermaid County Wicklow Arts Centre. 

We are inviting professional musicians, working primarily in classical, jazz/improvised or traditional music who have a strong track record in music performance and a clear commitment to audience development to submit an Expression of Interest in the Programme.

The Music Network Artist Residency Programme has been developed to provide the selected musician with access to resources to curate a 6-date concert series to take place within a 6 – 9 month timeframe, in collaboration with Music Network, Mermaid Arts Centre and Wicklow County Council Arts Office. It is intended that this programme will positively intersect with local authority arts development plans and venues’ programming priorities and potentially, the work of a range of community music groups.
