2023 Designer in Residence Applications Are Open!

Apply Now!

We’re inviting applications from established and emerging creative professionals for the 2023 Designer in Residence at benchspace. The current Designer in Residence Programme combines workshops and public engagement events. It is hoped that it will also provide an in-depth opportunity for Benchspace makers and the wider community to learn from the Designer in Residence during workshops, lectures, and special programs.

The Programme will afford the successful candidate the latitude and creative environment to progress a new body of work and facilitate the exploration of innovative methodologies. It is designed to bring established and upcoming designer makers or artists to Cork, Ireland, to showcase their work to a local audience and to contribute fresh perspectives to the professional makers at benchspace.

Please find full details on how to apply here.

This Residency is made possible with the support from Cork City Council Arts Service.
