Scene + Heard was designed to NURTURE ARTISTIC collaborations + SHOWCASE new WORKS Each year we give TIME + SUPPORT to help over ONE HUNDRED new shows find their CREATIVE DEVELOPMENTAL path + REACH an audience.
The festival invites applications from all corners of the island of Ireland, working in any art form, and from all artists whether they are starting their creative journey or deeply enmeshed in their art.
Because the festival itself is so delightfully diverse we encourage artists of all walks of life to get involved whatever their age, gender, ethnicity, creed or nationality. The festival is here to showcase the boldest brightest never before seen ideas from our diverse country and therefore all are welcome to apply.
We have a range of policies in place to protect and care for our incoming artists, our festival team and our partners and co-producers.
