MAKE is an initiative of Cork Midsummer FestivalDublin Fringe Festival,Project Arts Centre and Theatre Forum for the purpose of generating new performance work.

MAKE is a week-long residency at the Tyrone Guthrie Centre, Annaghmakerrig, Co. Monaghan, open to both Irish and international participants, during which time ideas for theatre and performance work are developed with the assistance of renowned international theatre makers.

MAKE is for artists looking for time, space and mentorship to develop their theatre and performance projects rather than on learning specific skills or techniques.  Far from promoting any particular method of making performance work, mentors offer residents advice and guidance informed by their own experience.

MAKE brings together fifteen theatre makers with three mentors with production and AV support available too. The emphasis is on creating new work with assistance, mentoring and support.  Mentorship is provided by three international artists with a wealth of experience in creating new work.  Artists pursue their own ideas and while it is not a training workshop, MAKE mentors offer support and encouragement in addition to challenge and critical rigour.

MAKE happens in early March. The 2014 or sixth MAKE residency will run from Saturday, March 1st to Sunday, March 9th inclusive. All residents are provided with accommodation and work or studio space in at the Tyrone Guthrie Centre, all meals as well as transfer by bus from Dublin to and from the Centre. Residents need only bring any materials they require to develop their own work. International applicants are encouraged to look to their own arts funders and Councils for support towards the costs of their travel to Ireland.

Since the first MAKE in 2009, 73 Irish and international artists have been MAKE residents.

MAKE will be held in the Tyrone Guthrie Centre, Annaghmakerrig from Saturday March 1st to Sunday March 9th 2014.
