Applications are open for the 2023 DDF Artist Pass programme. The Artist Pass offers emerging artists the opportunity to fully explore the DDF2023 programme, engage with international and Irish-based artists, and develop their artistic careers.

The DDF Artist Pass will give five dance artists the chance to attend a curated selection of events throughout the 2023 Festival, including high-quality Irish and international productions, presentations of works-in-development, and workshops with Festival artists (all ticket costs will be covered by DDF).

Seeing a broad range of work is vital for dance students and early career dance artists as they develop their practice.

The deadline is 5pm, Friday 14 April. All applicants will be contacted by Thursday 20 April.
