November 12, 2020

Draíocht and Centre Culturel Irlandais Paris

Draíocht is delighted to continue our partnership with CCI, supporting an artist to travel to Paris to participate in the 2021/2022 Residency Programme, tapping into the resources of the CCI and the city of Paris, as well as having the opportunity to showcase their work on an international stage. The recipients of Draíocht supported residencies are artists working in any discipline with a clear focus on children and/or young people.

To date, 4 people have been awarded Residencies; theatre makers Mary Lou McCarthy and Dan Colley (2018/2019); writer and theatre maker Sian Ní Mhuirí (2019/2020) and theatre artist Deirdre Dwyer (2020/2021).

Full guidelines, terms and conditions available on CCI's website
Applications to be made online by 12 January 2021


Arts Council Commission Award
Paul Curley and Ger Clancy

Draíocht is delighted to announce we have been awarded a Commission Award by The Arts Council to enable us work with Theatre-Maker Paul Curley and Designer Ger Clancy in 2021, in consultation with children in Dublin 15, to create a draft script and prototype puppet for a new theatre piece for young audiences about emotional intelligence: a heart-warming story about a wise and wily Parrot.
