Our Theatre Artist in Residence for 2016/2017 is Bob Kelly who has been working on a number of interesting projects based on the theme of Sligo Stories.
In Spring 2017, the theatre introduced a new Short Residency Programme. We offered a four-week residency to three artists who are working on creative projects throughout the year. The artists involved are Sligo musicians Kieran Quinn and Oisín Mac Diarmada and actor Nichola McEvilly. We are launching a new short residency programme Time at the Well for 2018 and artists are invited to apply for these short residencies.
The iYeats Poetry Competition is an annual, online, international poetry competition which has won a prestigious reputation for the calibre of both entrants and judges. The competition is open to all those 16 years of age and upwards. We award an overall prize across the board of entries and an emerging prize to a young poet aged between 16-25 years of age.
