The Invitation

We invite socially engaged artists from all disciplines to apply for the opportunity to become an embedded artist within the unique community and ecosystems of the Maharees on the west coast of Ireland. This creative climate project calls for an artist(s) whose practice centres deep listening and co-creation, as we navigate the complexities of imagining and creating new perspectives and behaviours with which to relate to our changing world.

The project activities will be based primarily in the Maharees, with office space available at Dingle Hub if required. The artist does not need to be present in the Maharees throughout the entire project timeline but will be required to spend sufficient time engaging and learning from the community there, 60 days at a minimum between April and September each year.

To apply, please read the Artist’s Brief in full and provide the following information in the form of a PDF (no larger than 10MB) to

  • CV with contact information, outlining qualifications and experience to date
  • Three relevant examples of previous work, for example, community engagement etc.
  • A personal statement outlining your motivation and initial vision for the project – up to 500 words.

We welcome applications from individual artists, groups, or collectives. Closing date for applications is Sunday 25th February 2024.

Creative Coastal Resilience is a recipient of the Creative Climate Action fund, an initiative from the Creative Ireland Programme. It is funded by the Department of Tourism, Culture, Arts, Gaeltacht, Sport and Media in collaboration with the Department of the Environment, Climate and Communications.
