We are delighted to announce that our application for the Arts Council Theatre Resource and Development Scheme for Skēnographia has been successful! 
Presented in association with Project Arts Centre, these series of free online creative workshops, lectures and practical sessions will take place on a monthly basis (please, see full list below).

We are truly excited to kick off the series with a creative workshop:
“Remote Lighting Design: pre-plotting shows” with SJ Shiels and Eoin McNinch on Friday 16 July 2021, 1pm-3pm.
SJ and Eoin will run this workshop drawing on their experience for the opera Hansel & Gretel, a co-production with Irish National Opera, Theatre Lovett and Abbey Theatre.
