The panel are working tirelessly on this and it is proving a very difficult decision to choose just one form 592. We have learned from this and will be adapting the process next year (if we get the funding) so that the process is less stressful for all involved. There should be a result in the coming weeks. Again we want to reitterate how grateful we are for your imput and we assure you we are getting close to the final chosen candidate.
We have been inundated with high quality, inspirational proposals and the selection panel are working through them presently. The residencies for [IRL] / [NOR] have been chosen by the judges. We are still awaiting a date for the Residency [INTL] , we are hoping to announce it at the end of April. We'l keep you posted
As artists ourselves we understand that this is frustrating but we are also mindful of the amount of time and effort that has been put into the proposals and we feel that in order to give each applicant sufficient time to be assessed we need to extend the timescales.
As soon as we know, applicants will be the first to know.
We are deeply grateful to you all for your time and effort and outstanding work.
With greatest respect
