The National Youth Council of Ireland's 'Artist in Youth Work Residency Scheme' is now open for applications. This scheme is offered to youth organisations involving professional artists and young people as a means of extending and enhancing opportunities for young people to experience and participate in the arts.

The aim of the scheme is to encourage artistic collaboration between professional artists and young people.

The deadline for applications 26 October @ 5pm.

Young people will have the opportunity to work with and learn from practitioners of excellence in their field. Equally, artists will have the opportunity to enrich their own professional practice through the contextual experience of working with young people.
