Centre Culturel Irlandais composer residency
The Irish composer Ailís Ní Riaín has been selected for a residency at the Centre Culturel Irlandais. The composer residency, in association with CMC, is part of the CCI’s annual residency programme and will enable the composer to spend time at the centre on a number of composition projects during 2017.

23 artists across the spectrum of artistic backgrounds will spend from one month to three months in Paris to develop their proposed projects.

Evonne Ferguson, Director of CMC: “The partnership with the Centre Culturel Irlandais in Paris is to enable a specific composer residency at the centre for composers represented by CMC. Now in its second year, this is an important residency for Irish composers which offers the opportunity not only to engage with the cultural richness of Paris but to have the time needed to develop creative ideas.”
