Catalyst 2018

Please note: applications for this project have now closed.

Callout for Writers and Directors aged 18-25

ArtsLab at the North Wall defines the year-round range of activities that enable us to achieve our mission: to offer a space for art and for artists to flourish. Fundamental to the programme are our ground-breaking residential projects for young, talented theatre artists, bringing them into contact with top theatre professionals, and providing opportunities for them to succeed and excel in a creative career.

The Easter project, Catalyst (formerly TheatreCraft), is central to our commitment to new writing, and brings two vital roles centre stage, offering talented young writers and directors two weeks of immersive creativity and the chance to focus solely on honing their craft. To those selected, we offer the chance to work with a team of professional actors, and highly experienced writing and directing mentors in a safe and supportive space, to develop and showcase new scripts.

The residency runs from Monday 26 March – Friday 6 April 2018 and is completely free of charge, including accommodation and all meals.
