Four selected artists will receive a free one-month residency, including individual studio space and access to all college facilities for October 2016. They will curate and organise a group show based on their time in the Burren and their shared experience, which will be held in the BCA Gallery in 2017 and will travel to G126 Gallery in Galway. Suitable candidates also have the opportunity to present a lecture at the College and engage with students and the broader College community.
