Visual Artists’ Workspaces in Ireland

The Arts Council has commissioned OBFA to carry out an audit, mapping and analysis of Visual Artists’ Workspaces in Ireland.  A survey was launched in April 2022, and providers, owners and co-operative managers of  Visual Artists’ Workspaces in the Republic of Ireland responded with a huge amount of data.  The survey results are being collated for final presentation to The Arts Council in autumn 2022.

This research will provide current statistical information on artists’ studios in Ireland and inform the Arts Council in relation to its own ongoing supports and planning for Visual Artists’ Workspaces.
