Graduate Awards

In continuing our commitment to supporting the professional development of visual artists and the creation of new work, Fire Station is offering two awards to four recent Fine Art college graduates (DIT and NCAD). 

Sculpture Workshop and Digital Media Awards

September – December 2018

We are delighted to announce that the FSAS 2018 Graduate Awards went to Gemma Brown (Sculpture), Emily Brennan (Digital Media) and Jessica McCumisky (Digital Media) from DIT and to Heidi Dwyer (Sculpture) from NCAD

Through partnering with DIT and NCAD Fire Station aims to support recent fine art graduates at a critical and often difficult transition point at the start of their careers on leaving the supported environment of third level education. By providing free access to working space and equipment as well as technical support, curatorial advice and small bursaries, Fire Station aims to support the development of graduate artists in their careers as professional visual artists.
