The Mothership Project Satellite Residency: Selected Artists Announced
The Mothership announces the 15 parenting artists who are recipients of residences:
This autumn, The Mothership Project in collaboration with Cow House Studios will run a pilot artist residencyprogramme giving 15 parenting artists supported time and space to develop their practice, including childcare and accommodation on-site for children and partners.
This pilot programme aims to generate institutional change in how artists are supported throughout their careers and changing family circumstances, as well as contributing to the debate on affordable childcare, precarious work and attitudes to care work. This residency programme for parenting artists highlights the difficulty of maintaining an art career as a parent in Ireland. The Satellite Residency is funded by the Arts Council of Ireland and Wexford County Council Arts Office and is supported by Visual, Carlow and Wexford Arts Centre.
The 15 artists travelling to Cow House Studios are Dorota Borowa, Stephen Dunne, Niamh Davis, Sarah Lincoln, Ruth Lyons, Ciara McMahon, Susan Montgomery, Celina Muldoon, Niamh O’Doherty, Sally O’Dowd, James O’hAodha, Una Quigley, Linda Quinlan, Ruby Wallis and Kate Warner.
