Artists are invited to apply for the residential with work based on any topic which covers the themes of We Only Want the Earth:

“We are living through a time of sudden and unpredictable social change caused by interlinked issues of global warming, the collapse of the neoliberal order, a resurgence of violent misogyny and nationalism, growing inequality, housing and homelessness crises, and the growth of ecofascism. We Only Want the Earth is a 12-month programme of awards, exhibitions, and events that seeks to interrogate the goals and strategies of social change: what kind of society do we want and how should we get there?”

This award is the first of a programme of awards and exhibitions which also includes partnerships with Fire Station Artists’ StudiosMASI – Movement of Asylum Seekers in IrelandMigrants and Ethnic-minorities for Reproductive Justice – MERJ and Dublin Central Housing Action.
