The Hawk’s Well is very pleased to be part of Strollers Touring Network - ‘Supporting artists, Developing audiences’
The Strollers Network partnership is made up of ten venues from across four regions of Ireland, and collectively represents one fifth of all publicly funded Arts Centres nationally. Since its establishment in 2010 the network has invested over €190,000 into the production and dissemination of new stage works by some of Ireland’s leading theatre artists, companies, and musicians. 2021 will see the launch of PROPEL our newest artist development and support programme.
The network has five key functions:
- To establish a touring network of performance venues across Ireland
- To support/co-produce work for touring (across all artforms)
- To receive touring works from artists and production companies (across all artforms)
- To sustain, develop and nurture our audiences for the performing arts.
- To develop relationships with artists and production companies that we work with.
