Second Artist Callout: Pavilion Studio

Pavilion Studio: August - December 2022

Pavilion Theatre is looking for playwrights, makers in theatre and artists to apply for use of a new studio space for emerging and experienced creatives to develop existing work or create new work. 

Successful applicants will be awarded one-week residencies at Pavilion Studio located above the Irish Design Gallery, Dún Laoghaire. It is our intention to offer payment to artists for their time at Pavilion Studio (subject to budget).

The Programme to Date

Following an open call in February 2022, the following artists were awarded one-week residencies at Pavilion Studio:

Amy Flood, Cara Christie, Cathal McGuire, Cathal Ryan & Chloe O'Reilly, Chloë Ní Mhurchú, Cliodhna McAllister, Daniel Wade, Dominic O'Brien & CN Smith, Gift Horse Theatre, James O'Donnell, Laoise Murray, Lesley Conroy, Liam McCarthy, Niamh McCann, Pea Dinneen, Peter Reid, Sara Keating, Tasteinyourmouth and Tzarini Meyler.

The Studio has been described as "a very comfortable and productive space", with the residencies being "restorative and inspiring" with the benefit of “advancing creative practice”.

The Space

The room itself is bright and comfortable, overlooking Dún Laoghaire Harbour and the dlr LexIcon library. It is an open, calm, functional space for artists to use as they wish; a blank canvas for inspiration. It might be used for writing, meetings, or small-scale production readings and development.

Kitchenette facilities and Wi-Fi connectivity are available, with the sea, library, Dún Laoghaire Town and Pavilion Theatre itself all a stone’s throw away.

Pavilion Studio is only accessible by stairs; however, an alternative space can be made available for artists with accessibility requests. Those using the studio must be mindful of occupants in surrounding rooms and those on lower floors.

Pavilion Studio is available from Monday 8 August until Friday 16 December 2022.

Applicants should submit a maximum of one page to include

  • their suitability for the use of the space and preferred dates
  • brief track record/background of the artist/company
  • a summary of the work they intend to create or develop

Applications (in PDF or document format) should be attached and sent to - including your artist name/company in the subject line.
