The Debi O'Hehir Bursary for a Visual Artist

We are delighted to open our 2022 application process for our Debi O'Hehir Visual Arts Bursary. This year we are focusing on artists living AND working in the west of Ireland - Galway, Clare, Donegal, Sligo, Kerry, Mayo, Leitrim, and Roscommon. Owing to the high volume of applications last year, we are focusing this year on artists working with paint, print, and textile.

The winner will receive a two week residency with us, fully catered, with use of a visual arts studio or our print studio, and will take up their award in 2023.

Our peer panelists for 2022 are visual artists, Mick O'Dea PPRHA and Professor Una Sealy RHA, along with Dr Éimear O'Connor, Resident Director of The Tyrone Guthrie Centre and Visual Arts Curator. The panel will short list and will then be joined by artist, Siobhán O'Hehir, to select the winner. The application process will close at 5pm on 30 November 2022 and the winner will be announced on our online platforms in late December.

All applicants must be 18 years or over. We welcome applications from all communities within the geographical area of the 2022 call out. Please click on the link below for the application form.

We wish all applicants the very best of good luck!
