Collaboration and mentorship are the seeds from which extraordinary ideas grow; we are excited to bring great minds together over a year long performing arts residency to develop and share expertise and practice. In response to the ongoing crisis for artists and arts workers who have had little or no opportunity to share their work, or practice through traditional means over the past year, we are collectively creating a container of regeneration and growth during 2021 and into 2022 for performing artists.
CREATION 21/22, is a collaboration of Irish and international artistic partners. It will be led by The Performance Corporation who developed Ireland’s first multi-disciplinary artist’s residency – The SPACE Programme. A truly unique programme will be created for performing artists at all stages of their careers and across a range of disciplines (dance, theatre, circus, spectacle, performance art, street arts), to develop their practice, network, learn and showcase work with support from Carlow Arts Festival, Dublin Dance Festival, National Circus Festival, Danseu Festival (Catalonia), ISACS Network and United Fall Dance. It will include in-person collaboration opportunities in Ireland, as well international residencies in 2021/2022
The project offers artistic development opportunities through mentoring, coaching, residencies and ‘in-progress’ presentation opportunities as part of Carlow Arts Festival, Dublin Dance Festival, National Circus Festival and Danseu Festival. This project is an opportunity to deeply collaborate with artists from various performing art forms and areas of experience. Participants will receive a bursary of €4,000 supported by their local authority Arts Service. International travel costs associated with residencies are covered.
Artists are invited to apply for the programme until the deadline of 9 June 2021 at www.CreationArtists.ie
