MAKE Applications Now Open

MAKE artist development programme and residency initiative is open to artists for the purpose of generating new performance work outside of the traditional writer-led model at all career levels.

MAKE is an artist development programme and residency initiative of Cork Midsummer Festival, Dublin Fringe Festival, Project Arts Centre and Theatre Forum. It is open to artists for the purpose of generating new performance work outside of the traditional writer-led model at all career levels.

Since the first MAKE in 2009, over 130 artists have been MAKE residents, receiving mentoring support from renowned international theatre makers. Past programmes have borne highly acclaimed performance work and collaborations going on to tour here in Ireland and internationally.

The 12th MAKE residency will run from 11 – 15 January 2021. Like many things this year, MAKE will be different. Since the much loved group residency at the Tyrone Guthrie Centre is impossible due to ongoing public health restrictions, this edition of MAKE will be reconfigured to provide valuable time and focus for performance makers, wherever they are.

Eligibility
MAKE 2020 will be open to Irish artists/artists based in Ireland only. We hope to return to the traditional programme format at Tyrone Guthrie Centre for MAKE 2021 and applications from international artists will once again be most welcome.

Application
This edition of MAKE is tailored for artists who are:
Developing a new performance work or
Seeking new approaches to connecting with their artistic practice

Participation in MAKE is by application only.
Complete this online application form.
Full attendance January 11 – 15, 10am – 6pm is required.
The deadline for receipt of applications is 6pm November 30th.
Successful applicants will be advised on December 9th.

Successful applicants will receive a fee of €1000, support from an international mentor, meetings with a network of peers and support from the MAKE partners. The MAKE coordinating team will collaborate with the selected artists to create a programme that fits their needs, and delivers the optimum conditions for developing their work and connecting with their peers and mentors.
