Operated by the National Youth Council of Ireland
This scheme is managed by the National Youth Council of Ireland (NYCI) on behalf of the Arts Council and the Department of Children and Youth Affairs. Please note that the award may be subject to different conditions and criteria than awards directly
administered by the Arts Council. Requests for information or application forms should be directed to the Youth Arts programme at NYCI.
The Artist and Youth Work Residency scheme is designed to promote innovative partnerships between youth groups, artists and (where relevant) arts organisations. A residency may take the form of an artist in residence in a youth work setting and/or a youth
group in residence in an arts setting.
There are two strands to the artist and youth work residency scheme:
Strand 1 – Youth Arts Explorer Grant €1,500
This grant is for projects, services and organisations that are beginning to explore introducing youth arts experiences to their youth work setting but are not yet sufficiently experienced/confident to develop or manage a larger scale residency project.
The aim of the grant is to support an organisation to explore the introduction of arts practice to the youth service through a flexible approach.
Potential activities could include to test an idea or concept, host introductory sessions, facilitate exploratory meetings between artist, young people and youth service, or connect the group to a local arts centre, cultural venue, etc. for a performance,
workshop, or exhibition (with a view to facilitating further partnership).
Strand 2 - Artist and Youth Work Residency Grant €5,000
The Artist and Youth Work Full Residency Grant aims
to promote innovative partnerships between youth groups, artists and (where
relevant) arts organisations; to support the development of youth arts practice
in youth work and support young people’s access to quality youth arts
experiences. A residency may take the form of an artist in residence in a youth
work setting and/or a youth group in residence in an arts setting.
This grant is intended to support residency
programmes that have been jointly developed by the partners involved (i.e., the
artist, youth group and any other key partner organisation), that offer
meaningful creative experiences where young people are at the heart of
decision-making and that fully meet the criteria for the award.
