Call for Artists for Dún Laoghaire Baths

Following the extensive redevelopment of Dún Laoghaire Baths, Dún Laoghaire-Rathdown County Council now seek artists to apply for new art workspaces.

Six awards are currently available to support local artists with rent free, purpose-built artist workspaces and project funding.

Two studios are available to assist local artists to develop their practice in Dún Laoghaire. A Public Art commission will fund a studio and the creation of new work in response to the theme of Home. While a fourth opportunity will allow artists to engage in a series of 3-month residencies in a new large workshop space that invites the public into the Baths to engage with the creative process.

The studios are provided rent free with additional funding support to assist with the purchase of materials, the making of new work or the presentation of workshops, talks and performances.

These opportunities are funding by Dún Laoghaire-Rathdown County Council Arts Office, the Arts Council, Creative Ireland and the Department of Housing, Local Government and Heritage.

The Council’s Arts Development Plan identified the lack of accessible artist workspaces as the key barrier to artists career progression in Dún Laoghaire-Rathdown. The studio complex at Dún Laoghaire Baths, with additional funding awards, seek to address this challenge and support the career of local artists.
