Submission call to all artists based in Co Tipperary for Culture Night at The Source

Friday 20 September 2013 at The Source Arts Centre, Thurles

Culture Night is a nationwide initiative and the country’s largest platform to showcase our rich and diverse cultural and artistic offering. In 2012 The Source Arts Centre hosted a performance by The Source Dance Artist in Residence, Cathy O’Kennedy and her young dance students. We also hosted a marathon community reading of Ulysses by local theatre and literature groups initiated by Thurles native, Bill Cooke. It was a wonderful event and this year we hope to get the local creative juices flowing again on Culture Night in Thurles.

The Source Arts Centre is now calling for submissions from artists based in North Tipperary. We are looking for a series of professional and amateur performance pieces to be showcased in The Source Arts Centre on Friday 20th September, Culture Night. We seek original work from the county to be showcased in the county on Culture Night. The performance piece should be no longer than 12 minutes and can be in the form of theatre, dance, song, live music, poetry or literature readings, film or multi-media presentation. Submissions will be accepted from artists working professionally or from those who just enjoy creating and performing new work. An expert panel will choose a selection of pieces to be showcased on The Source Arts Centre stage on Culture Night. The piece to be performed must be original work and the creator/performer based in County Tipperary.

So, if you are an old hand at this kind of thing or fancy creating new work for the very first time, please do get in touch. In order to apply please send the following to with the subject line Culture Night 2013 by the closing date of Friday 23 August at 5pm:

  1. your name and contact details (include email & phone)

  2. a description of the work (no longer than 300 words)

  3. a youtube or vimeo sample clip of the work (no longer than 3 minutes)

  4. entrants must be over 16 years
