In 2019, the RHA and IPUT were delighted to announce a new initiative: the Artist in Residence Programme at Wilton Park Studios, Dublin 2. In direct response to the ever-increasing studio crisis in Dublin, IPUT – Ireland’s largest owner of office space in Dublin – committed to fully support a facility with three studios, in collaboration with the RHA.
“Partnering with the RHA we found a real practical way to put our support of Irish art to practical use. It’s an exciting opportunity to use some of our commercial spaces around Wilton Park to collaborate with local artists from the concept stage all the way through to the delivery of their work” – Niall Gaffney, IPUT Chief Executive.
As part of the programme, 3 artists will each be provided with fully supplemented 6-month long residencies, over a period of 3 years.
“IPUTs foresight is helping to alleviate the current crisis of artist studio space in Dublin by providing three new fully subsidised studio spaces in the heart of Dublin city” – Patrick T. Murphy, RHA Director.
Three studios will be offered on a six-month basis to three artists. The studio spaces all have natural daylight and there are kitchen facilities available. The studios have working hour access, 8am to 6pm, Monday to Friday and are non-residential.
The first three six-month studio slots from September 2019 were awarded to:
