Centre Culturel Irlandais & Arts Council

I’m thrilled to announce that I’ve been awarded a 2 month residency at the Centre Culturel Irlandais in Paris and The Visual Artists Ireland Suki Tea Art Prize which funds the residency. I can’t wait to live and work in the centre of Paris and view lots of art. Thank you to Centre Culturel Irlandais, Suki Tea and Visual Artists Ireland for the opportunity!

“Visual Artists Ireland and Suki Tea are delighted to announce Cecilia Danell as the winner of this years Suki Tea Art Prize.

As winner of the Suki Tea Art Prize Cecilia will have a two month, fully-funded, artist residency at the Centre Culturel Irlandais in Paris, including flights, accommodation, studio space, a monthly stipend, and superb networking opportunities. The prize aims to provide artists with an opportunity to respond to a new environment and develop new work.”

I’m also very happy to have been awarded a 2019 Bursary from the Irish Arts Council which will fund my work for the coming year. I look forward to getting stuck into new work and research after a busy few months of exhibitions and am very grateful for the support!
