Roscommon Arts Centre is looking for Residents Associations throughout Roscommon who would be interested in participating in a project this summer! We want to bring an artist into your estate/development for one evening a week, over a six-week period. They will set up on your green space/communal area and make this their pop-up workspace as they engage with you -and your neighbours!

You’ll get an insight into their work, how and what they do and be invited to dip your toe into their world for an hour or so each week – where this leads to and what happens after that is up to you – maybe there’ll be a great display of paintings in everyone’s windows; a short music performance or a mini play, a sharing of handwritten stories…..only time will tell!

“Artist On My Green” is FREE to participate in, and will take place between June & August 2023.

Register your interest via email to: before March 31st 2023

Subject Line: Artist on my Green

Please tell us where you are located, number of dwellings and provide details of your communal/green area


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.
