Open call: Music Network Artist Residency 2017
Music Network is delighted to announce the Music Network Artist Residency, a new opportunity for professional performing musicians. The Music Network Artist Residency Programme aims to provide a musician with funding in order to plan and deliver a programme of concerts, with integrated audience development components, in partnership with a promoter and a local authority, and in dialogue with Music Network. Full details on how to submit an Expression of Interest below.
We are inviting professional musicians, working primarily in classical, jazz/improvised or traditional music that have a strong track record in music performance and a clear commitment to audience development to submit an Expression of Interest.
The programme has been developed to provide the selected musician with access to resources to create a 6-date concert programme to take place within a 6 – 12 month timeframe, in collaboration with Music Network, a promoter and a local authority. It is intended that this programme will positively intersect with local authority arts development plans and, potentially, the work of Music Generation and a range of community music groups. The programme supports Music Network’s mission to make high quality live music available and accessible to people throughout Ireland, while supporting the career development of musicians.
Initiated by Music Network in 2015, and developed in partnership with Triskel Christchurch and supported by Cork City Council, the Music Network Artist Residency pilot involved a concert programme with Irish and international musicians of renown curated by pianist Phil Ware, as well as a series of outreach initiatives and musician mentorships involving a selected group of students from CIT Cork School of Music and tutors from Music Generation Cork City.
Music Network is now calling for Expressions of Interest. Download the Guidelines document here.
Expressions of Interest should be submitted by email (operations [at] musicnetwork.ie) to Music Network, no later than 5pm, Thursday 30th June 2016. Please note late applications cannot be accepted.
