The aim of the Musicians-in-Residence Scheme is to provide opportunities to develop and showcase new work which may be compositional and/or performance focused, i.e. to create a new work/body of material and/or to develop a new artistic collaboration.
The 2 established residencies were awarded to Susan McKeown and Conor Linehan, and the emerging residency was awarded to Craig Cox.
