Helen Benedict and Tanja Softic are going to Ireland
Congratulations! The recipients of the VCCA exchange program with the Tyrone Guthrie Centre are:
Helen and Tanja will be going to Ireland for a one-month residency at the Tyrone Guthrie Centre in County Monaghan. Seventy miles from Dublin, the beautiful Annaghmakerrig estate is the former home of Sir Tyrone Guthrie, who left it to the Irish State to be used as a residential workplace for artists when he died in 1971.
The Tyrone Guthrie Centre has been exchanging residencies with VCCA since 1991—over 20 years.
In autumn, Irish artist Mary Donnelly and writer Mario Danneels will arrive for their residencies at VCCA.
