We do our utmost, in the first instance, to make space for all professional artists and creatives on the island of Ireland. Following on from our remit to provide space for artists on the island of Ireland, we are always pleased to welcome overseas and international residents. To this end, we continually seek strategic partnerships with local, national, and international arts organizations or individuals to create endowed opportunities to The Tyrone Guthrie Centre. We are deeply committed to ensuring full accessibility and inclusion, and many of our bursaries are specifically focused on making space and warmly welcoming our creative colleagues from all communities, and those who might not otherwise be able to take up a residency with us.

If you would like to partner with us to endow a bursary opportunity, please contact The Director,

All bursary opportunities to The Tyrone Guthrie Centre, whether funded through us, partnering organisation/s or individual/s, are assessed by peer panel with expertise in the specific area that the bursary focuses on.

All bursary holders must take up their residencies with us within 12 months of receipt of their award. Failure to do so will mean that the bursary opportunity will be returned to the awarding organisation for redistribution.

The Tyrone Guthrie Centre has consistently offered me the supremely practical gifts of time and space, teamed with a tranquil, beautiful, and nurturing environment. As a result, some of my best and most sustained writing, both fiction and non-fiction, has originated in this miraculous place.
