Exit 15 Commission: Call for artists

We are looking for an artist, artist collectives or artistic/administrative teams to collaborate with the Ballyogan community for a creative place programme that is responding to the artistic aspirations of local people under the banner of Exit 15. Exit 15 is a partnership between Dún Laoghaire-Rathdown County Council, Voluntary Arts Ireland and Queen's University Belfast and is funded by the Arts Council's Invitation to Collaboration Scheme 2017 and Dún Laoghaire-Rathdown County Council. 

This is an unique opportunity/platform for an artist or artists to develop new and exciting relationships with the Ballyogan community to design and deliver ambitious art projects, a series of arts 'happenings' or celebratory events that reflect the ambition of the community; the intergerational and multi-cultural residents, the people who provide and support local services, and the wide range of individuals and groups who use the amenities and local initiatives in Ballyogan and the surrounding area.
