Residency Opportunity: Resort Residency: Case Study III: Revelations, Lynders Mobile Home Park, Portrane, Fingal, 2017
Fingal County Council’s Arts Office is seeking expressions of interest from Artists & Curators to engage in a short term residency opportunity at Lynders Mobile Home Park, Portrane. Resort Residency/and associated commissioning programme Resort Revelations has evolved from the initial invitation to artists, curators and academics to spend week long periods at the mobile home park gathering, processing and engaging with the local area and it’s people, as researchers and holiday makers. The week long residencies focused on process, sharing of findings and the incubation of new projects. The Resort Revelations programme provides the resident an opportunity to return to the area and present new work during the local Bleeding Pig Festival at various locations in Portrane.
What stood out from the experience of previous participants was the wealth of history, beauty of the area and the willingness of those from the area to engage with the residency programme.
