The COVID-19 pandemic has meant change and disruption for many, including  creators who have seen their opportunities slow down with gigs, plays, exhibitions and other events moved online or cancelled worldwide. Science Gallery Dublin wants to continue to support and collaborate with the community, and with that in mind, they are launching a new round of experimental grants: virtual residencies available for makers, creators, writers, artists and designers in Ireland.

Apply Now for Science Gallery Dublin Grant

Science Gallery Dublin have five grants of €1,000 available for people to develop their ideas over the next five weeks.

For this virtual residency, grant holders will be paired with two advisors, depending on their interest area – advisors are drawn from groups of experts at Science Gallery Dublin, Trinity College Dublin, and other supporting cultural partners. By the end of the grant, holders should produce a publishable summary of their idea (the format is flexible), and how they might be further developed into a piece of work.

How to Submit

Send in your proposal (it must be under 180 words) before 2pm on Thursday 9 April. Outline your idea, and why this residency would be useful to you. You should include your CV and email

If successful, they hope to run a second round of more grants in May.

SGD are particularly interested in ideas that investigate art and technology, science and society issues, local community, curiosity, or ideas that appeal to young adults. They are open to all ideas and investigations, including those that may or may not have clear outcomes — including but not limited to installations, performances, workshops, social practice, experiments, written pieces, general research, online works and more.

This is an experiment. This is a grant to support you to develop your ideas at an extremely challenging time. Though small, SGD hopes it is something that can grow and help artists and designers continue creating in a time of crisis.
