aemi Affiliate Programme

aemi offers support to Irish and Ireland-based artists working with the moving image in a number of ways. To avail of any of these resources you can sign up and become an aemi affiliate at no cost.

To enquire about becoming an aemi affiliate please email for more details.

Resources available to aemi affiliates includes the following:

Advisory Sessions

One-on-one advice sessions for Irish and Ireland-based artists working with the moving image and who are no longer in full-time education.

These informal hour-long sessions with aemi curators are aimed at developing practice in a wide range of areas. The sessions are an opportunity to discuss production, post-production, exhibition strategies, funding, and promotion and can take place at any stage in the development of a work. While we can look at a limited amount of viewing material in advance of these sessions as well as some material during the session itself, it is best to leave as much time as possible for discussion. It might also be helpful to bring any written material about the work such as practice description, artist bio etc. Following the session artists will be asked to complete a short evaluation form so that we can monitor how helpful the sessions have been and to ensure they are as useful for artists as possible in the future. Advisory sessions typically take place in Temple Bar Gallery + Studios but can also be made available to artists resident throughout Ireland via Skype.

aemi Rough Cut sessions

Rough Cut is an event that aemi is currently developing for artists working with the moving image that would provide the opportunity to present works and works-in-progress in a supportive peer environment. For artists this would be a useful way to share and get feedback on your practice. Each session would take place in Studio 6 at Temple Bar Gallery + Studios, a relaxed and informal space on the second floor of the building. Each session would also be introduced and moderated by a guest curator/academic who would begin the event by giving an insight into their own interests and practice. If this is an event that you would be interested in presenting at or attending on a regular basis, please contact us at
