FSAS 2024 Residential Award

24 January, 2024

Fire Station Artists’ Studios has provided live/work studios, sculpture and digital media production resources, as well as curatorial opportunities for Visual Artists in Dublin’s city centre for over 30 years.

Supported by the Arts Council and Dublin City Council, FSAS continues to offer highly subsidised live/work residential studios for professional Visual Artists in Dublin city centre, at a time when city living is challenging. Highly reduced rent includes utilities, waste disposal, parking, internet access, use of the digital media resources and curatorial support, as well as subsidised access to our workspaces and equipment means Ireland’s artists can focus on their work.

Open call for applications:

  • 1 Residency for 1 year (Studio 5 from June 2024, €452/month including bills)

To be eligible, applicants must be full-time practising artists, with projects and exhibition profiles.

  • Artists who have been awarded a residency at FSAS previously are ineligible to apply;
  • International artists with a demonstrable connection to Ireland are welcome to apply;
  • Artists undertaking an MA or a PhD (full-time or part-time) are not eligible to apply.
