Lithuania | Northern Ireland
CCA Derry~Londonderry is the leading art space dedicated to supporting emerging visual artists for artists from Northern Ireland and their international peers. CCA is located within the historic city walls of Derry/Londonderry, the second city of Northern Ireland that sits on the border with the Republic of Ireland. CCA is artist-centred with recent exhibitions featuring artists such as Benjamin de Burca & Barbara Wagner, Filip Markiewicz, Soft Fiction Projects, Elizabeth Price, Ciara Philips, Mitch Conlon, Benedict Drew, Miguel Martin, Sarah Pierce and many more. CCA is a member of the Plus Tate Network. You can read more about CCA on our About page and our previous projects on our Exhibitions page.
In 2019/20 CCA is establishing the first of what aims to be an ongoing series of Reciprocal Residences. These residencies have a simple aim, to create opportunities for artists from Northern Ireland to participate in artist residencies across the globe and to receive artists, stimulating mutual dialogue and exchange. The residencies will take place at a mutually suitable time between autumn 2019–spring 2020 culminating with a group exhibition of new and existing work at CCA Derry~Londonderry, March–May 2020.
We are accepting Expressions of Interest from emerging artists based in Lithuania as part of our pilot year.
Note: the call for emerging artists based in Northern Ireland will go live in the coming weeks.
Participating artists will receive:
– temporary artist studio
– access to CCA networks and resources
– 24 hour hotdesk office space
– exhibition (group) March–May 2020
CCA will work with the successful artist/s to apply for additional funding.
To apply please email a current CV, website, up to 5 images and letter of intent to firstname.lastname@example.org with the subject heading RECIPROCAL RESIDENCY LT by the deadline of 27 May 2019.
