An Táin Arts Centre’s Creative Residency Programme is open to established artists from all artistic disciplines from or based in County Louth, looking to develop their practice in a community setting. The aim of the residency is to assist artists and creative practitioners to research and develop new work and give them the time and space to develop their practice in a supportive and vibrant environment. During the residency creative practitioners are provided with a financial stipend, studio space, mentoring and administrative and publicity support. #antainartists
Tara Tine is a documentary maker, author and musician based in Dundalk. Her work is largely informed by the liminality of the borderland landscape on which she grew up, as well as by the magic and mythology ingrained in all aspects of Irish culture. Lockdown 2020 led to the birth of her YouTube channel, ‘Diary of a Ditch Witch’ where she delves into history, folklore and all aspects of Irish culture through a humorous lens, using animation, music and storytelling to engage her audience. This year, she will begin to dig into one of the most famous mythological tales in the Irish collection, An Táin Bó Cuailgne.”
Tara was in residence during January – April 2022.
