Mayo Arts Service

Decade of Centenaries Writer in Residence

The Decade of Centenaries was initiated in 2012.  The aim of the State centenary commemoration programme for the years from 2021 – 2023 is to ensure that this complex period in our history, including the Struggle for Independence, the Civil War, the Foundation of the State and Partition, is remembered appropriately, proportionately, respectfully and with sensitivity. 

As part of Mayo County Council’s Decade of Centenaries Programme for 2023, Mayo County Council Arts Service in partnership with the Jackie Clarke Collection invite submissions from writers to undertake a special residency, working with the collection’s artefacts relating to the period 1922 – 23 in Irish history. 

The aim of this residency is to enable the writer to research, develop and present new work sensitive to the historical context of the period, in response to the Decade of Centenaries commemoration programme by working with the Jackie Clarke Collection.

Closing date for applications is April 24th.
