As per our Strategy 2022 – 2026, creating a compelling programme of work that supports artists and nurtures audiences is at the heart of who we are and what we do. It is why we exist. To put arts at the heart of peoples’ lives. We want to create an ecology which nurtures art and artists, and which makes the production and presentation of high-quality work available. We do this by providing a suite of artist development supports including residency programmes, artists in association, awards and bursaries, partnerships, commissions, opportunities to showcase work through productions and co-productions, and solo and group exhibitions.

In 2022 we announced Red Bear Productions as one of our associate artists, and we are delighted that the company will work with us over 2023. Writer/director Tracy Martin and actor Aoibhéann McCann lead this innovative company which presents dynamic theatre & film, telling unique stories of the human experience In association with Droichead Arts Centre, Red Bear will develop and present a number of projects and productions over 2022/23. Supported by The Arts Council.
