Dún Laoghaire-Rathdown County Council and dlr Mill Theatre, Dundrum, are inviting proposals for a commission involving the creation of new work through collaboration with local groups who meet in the Dundrum area.  There is particular interest in the work of writers and playwrights; the commission is also open to theatre practitioners. The budget is €15,000 and the deadline for submissions is Monday 2 October at 5.00pm.

This opportunity is part of the County Council’s Arts Office public art programme and it aims to create new work while engaging with the wider community in the Dundrum area. It is planned that the project will start by the end of 2017, with completion by August 2018.

The dlr Mill Theatre is situated at Dundrum Town Centre and was first opened in 2006. In 2016 it held 167 performances and welcomed over 45,000 patrons. The Theatre attracts a broad audience base.  One of its aims is to facilitate opportunities to engage with the audience, in addition to extending access and participation in arts and cultural activities within the catchment area.
