FDYS are currently looking to engage with a photographer who could develop a programme with young people in the Wexford town area within the Youth Work Residency Scheme to commence in September 17.
The scheme is designed to promote innovative partnerships between youth groups and the artists. A residency will take the form of an artist in residence in a youth work setting.
The key objectives are:
- 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.
- Each residency should be collaboratively developed with young people playing a central role in shaping the residency throughout. Inspire new ways of working and thinking that promote best practice in youth arts and provide both the host organisation and the resident artist with new insights.
- Build the capacity of the individuals and organisations involved to work in partnership on youth arts projects. Support residencies in settings where young people will have continued opportunities to engage with youth arts or youth work following the residency.
The successful applicant will be subject to Garda vetting.
