The Mermaid County Wicklow Arts Centre are now taking applications for Gap Day 2022. Gap Day gives professional freelance theatre practitioners across Ireland paid time to think, dream and plan. Gap Days are available to directors, devisors/makers, writers, designers, production managers and creative producers – essentially, anyone who has a prime creative role in the making of the work. If you’re not sure whether you’re eligible to apply, contact the team at the Mermaid rather than assume you aren’t!
A Gap Day enables people to take time out and dedicate a day to the creative research and thinking they haven't be able to do lately. How they spend the day is up to them: reading, writing, thinking, drawing, walking, dreaming. Whatever they don’t normally have time to do; whatever they think is needed.
Gap Day has been led by Lian Bell and Mermaid since 2015, and has supported over 170 artists to date. This year they are aiming to support approximately 45 Gap Day artists.
