Current Residents

Artists, writers, musicians... each season different residents carry out their own research and participate in CCI's cultural programme 

The combination of living and working in historic and atmospheric surroundings, in one of the most culturally diverse cities in the world, is of undeniable benefit to each artist in residence as well as an important means of channelling a wealth of artistic influence towards Ireland and its creative community.

An internationally recognized writer on film, he is an active member of Experimental Film Society in Dublin and has also curated screenings, workshops and multi-media programmes all over Ireland. Langan’s work in the field of sound has earned her the title of ‘Queen-Bee of Irish Noise’ and she curates the experimental music and film platform Black Sun in Cork. Her performance practice operates across the fields of live art, sound and film.
