Open call for artists to create work that is inclusive and engaged
Posted: 2 May, 2019
In association with Creative Ireland Programme & Tipperary County Council
‘Immersion & Inclusion’ is a two-month creative engagement that develops performances to connect creative practitioners with young people and their communities that often find themselves outside creative performance & engagement. It is our ambition is to support artists to develop their performance into an inclusive and engaged piece for these audiences and their families. This may include elements such as Sign Language, Sensory Experiences or even Non-Verbal Communication with a view to tour to regional venues across Ireland.
The Open Call is for creative practitioners whose work currently engages with young audiences, ages 5+ in all performance disciplines, including but not limited to theatre, puppetry, spoken word, literature dance etc.
The project is a two-month creative engagement, July – August 2019, in which we will provide a space for a practitioner to develop their performance to be an inclusive engaged piece suitable to tour regional venues. We would also provide financial support of €2,500 to enable them to concentrate on their artistic practice. In addition to a stipend, the project includes an accommodation allowance of €500, a private office with wifi, use of the Nenagh Arts Centre facilities, (Dance Studio & Theatre) as well as administrative and communication support with an aim to develop a marketing pack to include images and video.
