A career development scheme for theatre artists with caring responsibilities.

Presented by dlr Mill Theatre in association 2023 with MAM Ireland – PLAYGROUND is a career development scheme for theatre artists with caring responsibilities. The 4 session programme running each Wednesday from 13 September to 11th October from 10am – 12.30pm, will offer time and space for creatives who may have found themselves distanced from their practice due to the responsibilities of childcare and are taking steps to navigate a return to their creative practice.

Facilitated by Lesley Conroy (performer & writer, and MAM Ireland member). Established creatives Michelle Cahill, Veronica Coburn, Clare Monnelly and Johanne Webb will lead workshops and share their career trajectories as parenting artists.

OPEN CALL/RECRUITMENT:  Theatre artists with caring responsibilities who have an interest in developing work for the stage are invited to apply by confirming full availability for the 4 workshops and a short paragraph detailing their career in theatre to date (it is, of course understood that gaps in CVs often go hand in hand with caring responsibilities), and why this opportunity would benefit them at this stage of their creative practice.  Please send to [email protected] with ‘PLAYGROUND’ in the subject line. Deadline for submission: Wednesday 30th August at 5pm.  Places are limited and successful participants will be notified by Wednesday 6th September 2023.
