HatchLK Theatre Artist Initiative

HatchLK - ImageWith the City of Culture year coming to an end, there is a need for a fresh initiative for theatre practitioners.

HatchLK is a theatre artist development scheme designed to support theatre artists over a period of four months allowing them to develop their craft in a supported environment.

“Based at 69 O’Connell Street (former Belltable), HatchLK will provide participants with resources and space to engage with their own work, collaborate with other theatre makers to progress and hone their craft with support and mentoring.”

“Five participants will be selected and will be encouraged to enrich their own skills, experiment with other members of the programme, promote new ideas and enable the development of new work in a creative environment. The participants will work with the renowned ‘Theatre Uncut’ to create theatre in response to political situations.”

Applications are now open for the scheme, which will run from January to April 2015. Application deadline is this Friday, December 5.

HatchLK is curated by Maeve McGrath and funded by the Arts Council’s Theatre Artist Development Scheme and supported by Limerick City and County Council, The Lime Tree Theatre and 69 O’Connell Street. With support from The Limerick Spring and LCETB
