Residencies are open to performing, visual and literary artists working in all disciplines, as well as arts related researchers, curators, and groups developing other creative projects. We are interested in process, and place no emphasis on production.
Greywood Arts has a movement studio, visual arts studio, writer?s room, and a library with a piano. There is also a dining room / meeting room available.
There are four bedrooms which can accommodate up to nine guests at a time. There is a fee for self-catering accommodation, but workspace is granted.
We are happy to support work-in-progress showings or other types of sharing with our local community.
Applications are accepted on a rolling basis.
Visit our website for funded opportunities offered in addition to the Standard Residency programme.
Greywood Arts is a multidisciplinary artists residency in a Georgian building in the quaint village of Killeagh, Co. Cork, Ireland. It is located beside the river Dissour, at the foot of Glenbower Wood, and just next door to one of the oldest thatched roof pubs in Ireland. Killeagh is ten minutes from the sea, and Cork City is only 35 minutes away.
We are a welcoming place where meaningful personal and group experiences are constructed through participation in the cultural and educational events and residencies we programme.
