Gap Day Artists 2022

We are delighted to introduce you to the 2022 Gap Day artists!

All 45 of these freelance theatre-makers have been selected to take part in Gap Day, an initiative by Lian Bell in collaboration with Mermaid Arts Centre.

This programme is a unique opportunity for independent theatre artists across the island of Ireland to get the time and space to dream, think and plan that is often impossible for freelance workers to carve out.

The participants will be paid for their time and hosted by over 40 venues, arts centres and cultural organisations local to them.

A packed lunch, as well as access to monthly drop-in online gatherings, one-to-one coaching and more are all available to our Gap Dayers.

They also have the opportunity to engage an Artist Friend - someone inspirational to their practice who they can approach for a conversation to help them get even more into the creative flow.
