Fire Station's Sculpture Workshop and Digital Media Awards

One of Fire Station’s policies is to maximise access to and use of the facilities here. These facilities include the Sculpture Workshop, the Resource Centre and the digital media equipment. In order to open up these facilities and to offer greater support to visual artists we introduced the Sculpture Worksop and Digital Media Awards and Bursaries in 2010. Over the past seven years we have identified different levels of demand required by artists applying for these opportunities and, as such, the awards have evolved to reflect this.

CLOSED

The primary focus of the Sculpture and Digital media awards is for artists, emerging or established, to develop their practice.
Having an awareness of our facilities, resources and programme is helpful to artists making an application. Applicants will find relevant information on the FSAS website at http://www.firestation.ie/
