Dance Ireland have opened applications to their Hatch Award 2023

The awards focus on investing in time for artists to think, reflect on and reimagine their creative processes, make connections with other artists; and will provide an enhanced opportunity for one dance artist to experiment, collaborate, and seed and develop a new work.

There are three strands to the Hatch Awards:

Hatch Mentoring Award – three awards of €500 for early career artists to engage in mentoring and support outside the studio.
Hatch Artistic Research Award – three awards of €3000 to invest in and support practice for established artists.
Hatch Creation Award – one award of €7000 for a mid-career or established artist to provide an incubation opportunity to focus on seeding and developing a new work.

“In 2020, in response to the changes brought about by the pandemic, we reimagined the shape of our Hatch Award to encourage resilience, connection and creative breathing space. We have continued with this offer since then in recognition of the diverse needs of artists at different stages of their practice and career within our dance ecology.”
