Decade of Centenaries: Artist in Residence

We are delighted to announce that Mairéad McClean will join us as Decade of Centenaries Artist-in-Residence based at the Trinity Long Room Hub.

Today Minister for Tourism, Culture, Arts, Gaeltacht, Sport and Media Catherine Martin T.D. announced all five selected artists-in-residence under the Decade of Centenaries 2012-2023 Programme.

The Decade of Centenaries artist in residence scheme is an exciting opportunity for Beyond 2022 to re-imagine Ireland’s deep history with the benefit of a creative gaze. We look forward to welcoming Mairéád and working together with the Trinity Long Room Hub to explore how our national archival tragedy a century ago can inspire creative arts practice to engage new audiences today.

Minister Martin said:

‘These artists will reflect on the rich collections held by, and collaborate with, their host partner to create innovative pieces and imaginative work to support and grow the audience for these collections, held by our National Cultural Institutions and other bodies.’
