Membership is annual and runs from May 1 through 30 April. The cost is €60 per year.  We open to new members each year in April by application . If you’d like to be notified and receive an application, please register.

Mór Artists Collective welcomes professional and emerging artists of all disciplines including visual, performing, literary, and film.

Artists must live or work in the East Cork or Dungarvan/Lismore municipal districts. 

Mór Artists Collective defines a professional artist as a person who is actively pursuing a career as an artist in any art form, and who considers their arts work as their main profession or career. This applies even if their work in the arts is not their main source of income or they have other employment. An artist has specialised training in their artistic field (not necessarily in academic institutions) and is recognised as a professional by his or her peers (artists working in the same artistic discipline). 

An emerging artist is defined as an artist who is a recent graduate or in the early stages of their career, who is developing their practice and reputation and becoming recognised by fellow artists.

Mór Artists Collective welcomes artists with physical, sensory, intellectual and mental health impairments. We are committed to the provision of support for an evolving range of artistically ambitious practices and operate inclusively.

Key Benefits

Monthly Meetings

Our monthly meetings include salon style art shares, guest speakers, hands-on workshops and skill shares, as well as a relaxed forum for casual discussions. Once per year, we host a “think tank” meeting to gather feedback, devise collaborative projects, hone the collective’s vision and plan for the future.

Member Showcases

Mór Artists Collective strives to raise the visibility of the integral role the arts and artists play in this region. We showcase members' work through an annual group exhibition and associated performance or literary events that travels to both East Cork and West Waterford. We also showcase members work online via our Website, Facebook and Instagram accounts.

Resources

Members have access to a membership directory and resource library, and receive a monthly newsletter covering what’s on locally, member news, and funding and exhibition opportunities. Members receive regular updates and support from the Collective Coordinator.
