The Abbey Theatre 5×5 Scheme invites citizens from all communities to submit an idea for development

Posted: 24 November, 2017

The Abbey Theatre invites citizens from all communities to submit an idea or project that they want to develop.

They will choose 5 of these projects and provide you with 5 days’ worth of space, technical assistance and €5,000 to explore this project.

Do you feel that your community is underrepresented on the Irish stage?
Do you think your voice has not been heard by national organisations?
Do you want to develop a new idea that will give voice to your community?
Do you have a story to tell?

The Abbey Theatre is committed to creating an environment that promotes equality and dignity. They are dedicated to welcoming citizens from across the nation to experience theatre, to debate theatre, to make theatre.

Please note: these supports are to be used to develop your idea but you are not expected to present a show at the end of the week.

Click here to apply via Google Forms.

This is a short form which asks three primary questions about your community, your project and how you would use your allocated €5,000.

Deadline: Friday, 15th December
