Five residencies are proposed in the five Electoral Areas of County Donegal, Ireland. One per area. Artist must apply to one of the 5 areas.

The residencies will be managed by co-curators for the project John Cunningham (Regional Cultural Centre) and Annick Bureaud (Leonardo/OLATS). Workshops and seminars will be held with the artists and interested parties, throughout the run of the residencies.
