Gap Day is an initiative led by Lian Bell with Mermaid (funded through the Arts Council Theatre Resource and Development Scheme) that offers professional freelance theatre practitioners across Ireland paid time to think, dream and plan. Gap Days are available to directors, makers, writers, designers, production managers and creative producers. Essentially, anyone who has a prime creative role in the making of the work.
A Gap Day enables freelance theatre makers to take time out and dedicate a day to the creative research and thinking they have put on the long finger. What to spend the day doing is up to them: reading, writing, thinking, drawing, walking, dreaming. Whatever they don’t normally have time to do; whatever they think is needed.
We welcome applications from across the country – the Gap Day team will facilitate a workspace in an arts centre or cultural centre local to the theatre maker for their Gap Day.
