Áine O’Hara is a multidisciplinary artist, theatre maker and designer who graduated with a BA in Fine Art from IADT in 2013. Since then, she has shown work nationally and internationally. Áine’s recent achievements include Mayo Arts Office Navigating a Future Commission (2021), Arts Council Theatre Bursary (2020), Arts & Disability Connect Training Award (2020), Outburst Queer Fringe Award (2019), Oileán AiR programme (2019) and DUETS award at Dublin Fringe Festival (2019). Áine’s work experiments with form, and focuses on connection, conversation, and care. Their long-term ambitions include demanding adequate access to theatre and the arts for disabled and marginalised communities through the creation of large scale, ambitious work as well as the continuation of community building projects like Chronic Chats; a creative and social group for chronically ill people which grew from their research as part of her recent artist residency at A4 Sounds, Dublin. Áine is currently artist in residence at Axis Ballymun.
