Irish Theatre Institute invites applications from theatre artists, companies and playwrights interested in participating in the fifth cycle of ITI’s Six in the Attic programme, including a dedicated Writers’ Annex, funded by the Arts Council’s Theatre Resource Sharing Scheme. For the next iteration of Six in the Attic, applications are also sought from theatre makers/directors requiring access to dedicated ITI Producer Support for a specific project in 2015/16.


To more effectively meet the requirements of the independent artist, ITI has extended participation in Six in the Attic to 18 months, a timeframe more conducive to providing security to the artist and enabling the creation, development and production of new work.


Successful applicants will benefit from access to a designated resource space and administrative supports, as well as in-house expertise to assist them engage, explore, develop and collaborate on their projects. ITI’s framework of on-going support and mentoring will include expert advice on a range of topics such as strategic planning, contract negotiation, rights management, networking, professional development, touring, application processes, funding schemes as well as budget management. ITI can also provide expert producing advice and/or support.


The application deadline is Monday 17th November 2014, 5.30pm


Applications should be addressed to Eláine Donnelly, General Manager and sent by email to
