Our International Curator Residency Programme:

Fire Station Artists’ Studios (FSAS), Dublin, Ireland invites international curators to apply for flexible residencies throughout 2020. The FSAS International Curator Residency provides contemporary international curators with a space to live, work and network in Dublin. Residencies are available between one week and one month.

Through these residencies, Fire Station aims to build links and foster collaborations between Irish artists, curators, art institutions and their artistic peers internationally. This residency programme provides opportunities for international curators to familiarise themselves with the Irish visual art scene, undertake research, make connections and potentially bring Irish artists international exhibition opportunities.

Fire Station’s established reputation spanning 25 years of work helps with key personnel contacts in both public and private art institutions, as well as with independent curators and artists. Another advantage for an international curator visiting Dublin is easy access to a dynamic and growing visual art scene within a compact city that is manageable on foot. Our Dublin city centre location is within walking distance of all major galleries both public and private and artists’ studios which are located close to Dublin city centre. In addition, FSAS is located close to national rail and bus transport lines with easy access to the cities of Cork, Galway, Limerick and Belfast which all have distinct and vibrant art scenes.

Respective curators deliver a public talk, take part in FSAS community events, receive a €200 stipend and write a follow-up evaluation documenting their residency.
