This third annual residency programme will see 5 successful artists selected from 45 submissions and artists will be awarded bursaries of up to €5,000 and given access to the studio at Backstage for up to two weeks.  Accommodation will be provided for the lead artist and any collaborators.

A call out will be issued to artists on Backstage Theatre's website and social media platforms.
