BLAST 2021 Arts in Education Residency Initiative in Primary and Post-Primary Schools


The Department of Education has developed a new innovative Arts-in-Education BLAST Residency Programme in 2021, which will enable up to 400 new Arts-in-Education Residencies in schools each year.

 This initiative aims to support the integration of the principles and key skills outlined in the Arts in Education Charter and the Creative Ireland Programme (2017-2022), Pillar 1 Creative Youth.

Please do not contact any artist untill  you are asked to do so only if and when you receive an offer of a residency in writing as this could exclude you from a residency offer.
