Ter­ence be­comes artist in res­i­dence at the Court­house

Wicklow People (Arklow) - - NEWS -

FILM­MAKER Ter­ence White has been un­veiled as the Artist in Res­i­dence for 2018/2019 at the Court­house Arts Cen­tre in Ti­na­hely.

Ter­ence has made nu­mer­ous short nar­ra­tive films and doc­u­men­taries in the past and has worked on sev­eral projects with the Court­house pre­vi­ously.

In 2004, he re­ceived Wick­low County Coun­cil fund­ing to make a short film with the Court­house youth theatre group and in 2006 he was awarded an Arts Coun­cil funded com­mis­sion to make ten short doc­u­men­taries to mark the 10th an­niver­sary of the open­ing of the arts cen­tre. He was re­cently com­mis­sioned by Wex­ford Arts Cen­tre to make a short doc­u­men­tary about cul­tural her­itage, funded by the govern­ment’s Cre­ative Ire­land ini­tia­tive.

While Ter­ence is work­ing on sev­eral projects dur­ing the res­i­dency, his main fo­cus will be a fea­ture film screen­play. He plans to have the script com­plete by the end of April next year.

‘I’m ex­tremely grate­ful for the op­por­tu­nity the Court­house Arts Cen­tre has pro­vided me to progress my film­mak­ing prac­tice,’ he said. ‘I am able to al­lo­cate more time to my cre­ative work each week, thanks to the fi­nan­cial sup­port from the Court­house, and the arts cen­tre is a very sup­port­ive space to work in.’

Artis­tic Di­rec­tor at the Court­house Hannah Mul­lan said she was de­lighted to wel­come Ter­ence as Film Artist in Res­i­dence for the next twelve months.

‘As­sist­ing in the de­vel­op­ment of lo­cal artists is cen­tral to the ethos of The Court­house and I very much hope that he will en­joy his time work­ing here,’ she said.
