The overall aim is for participants to share, explore, solve problems and develop a way forward through new ideas generated at the laboratory.

This opportunity aims to:

– Stimulate the participants’ movement practice and imagination.
– Give meaningful feedback and support on the artists’ creative and compositional methods.
– Allow a space for reflection on and development of each participant’s unique artistic voice.
– Accommodation in Limerick will be provided along with a stipend of €100 toward living expenses.
