WHAT (Waterford Healing Arts Trust) invites applications from artists of all arts disciplines for a six month residency based at University Hospital Waterford. WHAT has been running an Artist in Residence programme since 1994 as a means of engaging hospital users in contemporary arts practice and offering opportunities to emerging artists for professional development within a healthcare context. The deadline for applications is 31 March 2016. 

This year, the focus of this residency will be the artist’s engagement with patients in University Hospital Waterford in participatory / collaborative arts experiences. 

The successful artist will receive a studio space for a six month period in the WHAT Centre for Arts and Health, a bursary and support from WHAT staff. The closing date for applications is Thursday, 31 March 2016 at 2pm.

Interested applicants are invited to attend a briefing session in the WHAT Centre for Arts and Health on Monday, 14 March 2016 at 1pm. Please phone 051 842664 or e-mail no later than 10 March to book your place.
