Roscommon Arts Centre is committed to connecting with new and diverse communities, inspiring more people to discover and access the arts, through socially engaged and pioneering work from a multitude of voices that reaches and meaningfully engages with new audiences.

As part of this, the “Artist on My Green” summer residency programme, has opportunities for 3 socially engaged artists/collectives to engage with residents in Roscommon housing developments or estates over a six-week period this summer.

Each participating artist will engage via the Residents Association as one evening a week, the artist hosts an open session on the communal/green area in that development/estate which residents are welcome to attend. Over the course of the six weeks, the artist will introduce residents to their practice and facilitate opportunities for them to both engage with and respond to their work/artform.

A residency outcome is encouraged in some form, which could be a sharing, reading, performance or exhibition that incorporates the work of both the artist and the residents.
