Irish Theatre Institute invites applications from emerging theatre artists and companies interested in participating in the fourth cycle of ITI’s Six in the Attic programme, funded by the Arts Council’s Theatre Resource Sharing Scheme. ITI is also inviting applications from playwrights to the scheme, as the Six in the Attic includes a dedicated Writers Annex.

Six in the Attic is an initiative, funded under the Arts Council’s Resource-Sharing Scheme, which allows ITI to provide theatre artists (or companies) with space, time and practical resources coupled with mentoring and advice services which they need to explore, develop and make work in a conducive environment. The top floor of ITI’s building at 17 Eustace Street has been configured to provide space for six company ‘pods’.

In addition to the physical space ITI provides a framework of ongoing support and mentoring including expert advice on a range of topics from networking and touring to application processes, funding schemes, artistic planning, career development and payroll and budget management to each company/artist.

The application deadline is Monday November 18th at 5.30pm. 

Applications should be addressed to Claire O’Neill, General Manager and sent by email to
