The Digital Arts Studios’ residency programme aims to encourage and support new and established artists in the creation of innovative, challenging and experimental new work by providing a creative hub with access to a range of facilities and resources. The programme offers four international residencies and twelve UK & Ireland residencies each year. For details on the UK & Ireland residency programme, please visit the Digital Arts Studios' website. The International Residency provides artists with an opportunity to bring their practice to a new, productive, supportive and dynamic environment located within Northern Ireland.
International artists are provided with an opportunity to discuss their work and resident’s talks/events are included and advertised as part of the DAS program, however there is no provision for exhibition. Artists wishing to exhibit during their stay may organise this themselves if they wish and we will assist where possible.
The residencies provide artists with 24-hour studio access, technical support, free audio/visual equipment hire and access to training.
The residency will provide participants with 24hour access to the studios and a personal MacPro workstation programmed with relevant software. Residents also have access to a range of equipment (DSLRs, video & sound recording equipment), software (Final Cut Pro, DVD Studio Pro, Adobe Creative Suite etc.), technical support and specialised training. All residents areentitled to attend workshops free of charge and are exempt from equipment hire charges.
In 2012, the Digital Arts Studios relocated in new premises in the Cathedral Quarter, Belfast, Northern Ireland.
