This programme will afford artists financial support, time and space to collaborate with other artists and mentors at Backstage Theatre. A callout will be issued to artists offering them access to the theatre and support in the creation and development of work. A selection panel will shortlist and select 9 artists to participate in the programme.
Successful applicants will receive access to studio space with limited additional access to the main stage, technical and admin support, a budget for the development of their work and accommodation if required. They will also be offered guidance on marketing and publicity and mentorship support form the lead artist in residence, Maisie Lee, along with introductions and networking in Longford and the arts sector.
