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.
