MAKE 2018

January 30th 2018, at 10.38am

We’re thrilled to announce the participants and mentors for MAKE 2018!

MAKE is an artist development programme and residency initiative of Cork Midsummer Festival, Dublin Fringe Festival, Project Arts Centre and Theatre Forum Ireland.

“For the last 10 years MAKE has provided artists with a unique opportunity to develop new work, build relationships with Irish and international colleagues and receive mentorships from some of the world’s most brilliant artists, curators and dramaturgs. I am delighted that Project continues to to be part of such an initiative and to be bringing such a fantastic group of artists and mentors together at the Tyrone Guthrie Centre next month.” Cian O’Brien, Project Arts Centre

This year we’ll be welcoming back two mentors, Ragnheiður Skúladóttir, Managing Director of Iceland Dance Company, and Maiko Yamamoto, Artistic Director of Canada’s Theatre Replacement, and joining them this year will be electro musician and performance artist Peaches.
