Call for applications: WHAT Artist in Residence 2016

WHAT (Waterford Healing Arts Trust) invites applications from artists of all arts disciplines for a six month residency based at University Hospital Waterford. This year, the focus of this residency will be the artist’s engagement with patients in University Hospital Waterford in participatory / collaborative arts experiences. 

WHAT has been running an Artist in Residence programme since 1994 as a means of engaging hospital users in contemporary arts practice and offering opportunities to emerging artists for professional development within a healthcare context. 

The successful artist will receive a studio space for a six month period in the WHAT Centre for Arts and Health, a bursary and support from WHAT staff.

The closing date for applications is Thursday, 31 March 2016 at 2pm.
