2 February, 2023
Fire Station Artists’ Studios is pleased to announce 1 residential award for an Artist with a Socially Engaged Practice for 2023.
2023 marks a significant change of format, building on past provision with a new outline of residencies, that will benefit a greater number of artists, create wider diversity within FSAS and supporting a changing outline of what being an artist in Ireland in the early 21st century entails.
- 1 residency for 1 year (Studio 8 from April/May, €667/month including bills)

- To be eligible applicants must be full time practising visual artists, with project and exhibition profiles.
- International artists with a demonstrable connection to Ireland are welcome to apply providing they are eligible (see eligibility section below).
