Performers in Trickster Ignite Galway at the Black Box


Three collaborative commissions in Galway, Mayo and Cork celebrating arts and disability led by internationally recognised artists with disabilities.

‘An opportunity to Dream Big!’ – Ignite was designed to generate Ireland’s most ambitious showcasing of talent from people with disabilities.

The commissions were led by international and Irish artists and performers with disabilities. These commissions each represented an investment of up to €60,000, Ireland’s largest ever investment in Arts and Disability.

Trickster was premiered in Galway in October 2014. Commissioned by Galway City and Co Councils for Ignite
Silent Moves was premiered in Mayo in November 2014. Commissioned by Mayo Co Council for Ignite
Cork Ignite was premiered in Cork in September 2015. Commissioned by Cork Co Council for Ignite

Ignite is a partnership between the Arts Council, Arts & Disability Ireland, Cork City Council, Galway City and County Councils, and Mayo County Council.
