Residency Opportunity -The Resort Residency. Case Study II, Resort Revelations
Residency Opportunity: The Resort Residency/ Case Study II, Resort Revelations, Lynders Mobile Home Park, Portrane.
Fingal Arts Office is seeking expressions of interest from Artists & Curators to engage in a short term residency opportunity at Lynders Mobile Home Park, Portrane. This opportunity follows on from last year’s” Case Study I” the first exploration of the Donabate/Portrane Peninsula which saw artists, curators and academics spend week long periods at the mobile home park gathering, processing and engaging with the local area and it’s people, both as artist residents and holiday makers. The week long residencies focused on process, sharing of findings and the incubation of new projects. What stood out in the experience was the wealth of history, beauty of the area and the willingness of those from the area to engage with the residency project. As a result this year’s “Case Study II, Resort Revelations”, sees former artists returning to present some work which will reflect on their experiences of last year while complementing the activities of a local community festival by way of returning something to the area.
This year we have an opportunity for another set of residencies, which again will be taking on a focus on process and exploration and invitation to contribute to an archival Case study in relation to the local area, people and the experience of this context.
