PhotoIreland invites Ireland based curators and any other art professionals to join the Professional Weekend in Dublin, 15-17 July, as part of PhotoIreland Festival 2022.


The 13th edition of the festival programme provides a two-month long overview of contemporary practices from the island with a survey exhibition ‘On the History and Practice of Photography in Ireland’; it brings together the largest and most meaningful representation of the discipline ever brought to the public, and it includes many artworks from private and national collections. 

The programme provides in addition a wealth of resources for researchers and practitioners to expand their understanding, from an exhibition on the Irish photobook to a comprehensive overview of historical data, and a series of conferences throughout July and August.

In this context, the Professional Weekend represents a unique opportunity to acquire a substantial understanding of the Irish context beyond the well known practices.

PhotoIreland invites curators and art professionals based on the island to join a substantial programme of events over three days, 15th to 17th July, that will include site and studio visits, networking opportunities with artists and art professionals, private tours and presentations, and collective leisure activities.

In order to make the most of the programme, we ask all participants to follow this process. We won’t be able to accommodate late participation. The offer is open to emerging, mid-career or established participants based on the island.

How to Participate

Prepare a succinct PDF with:

  • A short Bio and a portrait image
  • Your most recent work or selected highlights
  • Detailed contact information, including where you are currently based.

Once collated, please email the PDF to

If you are applying as a representative of an organisation, treat the above from the perspective of the organisation as much as your personal practice.

Deadline to submit: 6pm Irish Time 29th April
We don’t extend deadlines.
