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.
May - June 2019
A fiddle player based in Dublin, Danny Diamond’s collaborations with Irish writers have led to him turn his hand to writing song lyrics as well. He will use his time in Paris to arrange, compose and record music for a new project investigating community, place, digital alienation, and contemporary Irish identity.
