CÚRAM Art/Science Residency Galway – €10,000

There’s an excellent opportunity for artists wanting to or working around science themes in Galway. CÚRAM is a biomedical research centre in Galway, and has announced an artist’s residency worth €10,000.

Since 2015, CÚRAM, the Science Foundation Ireland funded Centre for Research in Medical Devices based at NUI Galway, has hosted artist residencies in its laboratories.

In partnership with the Galway City Arts Office, we are now inviting proposals from artists who are interested in working as part of CÚRAM’s public engagement programme, which supports Science Foundation Ireland’s objective of ‘having the most scientifically informed and engaged public’.

We invite artists to propose ideas for an ambitious and contemporary permanent artwork in Galway’s Eastside community in Ballybane and Doughiska. The budget for this project is €10,000.

The artist will work with one of the following three themes:
• Cardiovascular research – Researcher: Professor William Wijns
• Soft and hard tissue regeneration – Researcher: Dr Dimitrios Zeugolis
• Biomaterials and the body – Researcher – Dr Manus Biggs

The chosen artist will work within the CÚRAM laboratories to learn about CÚRAM’s research and will then spend a period of time working with the Eastside community to realise the project. The artist will be required to undergo Garda vetting.

Time is short on getting a proposal submitted in time for 5pm, June 21st. Interested artists should make submissions to curam@nuigalway.ie. No submissions will be accepted after this date, so interested artists should get working on proposals ASAP!
