The Inevitable Ether – A Residency Award from Greywood Arts & the National Space Centre

Greywood Arts

With Funding
Free / No Costs
Killeagh, Ireland


Greywood Arts & the National Space Centre invite expressions of interest from artists working in any visual, installation, or time-based medium who engage with themes of outer space, technology, and speculative futures in their work. We are seeking imaginative proposals investigating big ideas – how can we conceive of the infinite possibilities the universe has to offer? What do our actions in outer space tell us about our relationship to Earth and to each other? From philosophy to science fiction, the complex themes that emerge might include space exploration and colonisation, space tourism, the regulation and control of outer space, satellite technology, space debris, radio and light pollution, climate change, planetary origins, asteroids, and the possibility of life in outer space. We encourage applications from early career, women-identified, and minority artists.
