    Kristina Chun Writes...

    I’m a hiring manager at Prompt, an online writing-tutoring company, and we are hiring new Writing Coaches for flexible, part-time, remote work.

    We’ll be closing our application in just a few weeks, so I wanted to make sure that anyone interested had a chance to apply. If you think this position might be a good fit for any of your instructors, students, or alumni, feel free to have them check out their job posting. As a note, we’re flexible on when our Coaches can begin working, so applicants are able to apply now, even if they’d like to begin later in the summer.


    Killian Coyle Writes

    I am an independent Creative Producer / Actor, and part of the field:arts cohort which was recently set up under the Arts Council's new Creative Production Supports initiative.

    As part of the support offered to me by field:arts, there is an opportunity for me to take on someone within a mentorship / trainee producer role — this is a paid position. It would also mean that the trainee would become part of field:arts cohort for the duration with access to resources such as Company Producer, Head of Production, consultation and training or workshops that coincide with the engagement. The only expectation that field:arts will place upon trainees will be to contribute feedback on their experience and how learning on the job worked for them — this will allow us to further improve processes.

    We are currently ironing out the full details of the engagement but I was initially thinking that myself and the trainee would work together across 2 productions that are due to be presented back to back as part of DTF 2022 — Animal Farm by Louise White, and Decoys by Shaun Dunne.

    Animal Farm by Louise White
    Louise White is developing a contemporary and electric adaptation of George Orwell’s Animal Farm. It is slated to premiere in Cork Everyman in August / September 2022 and will continue to Project Arts Centre, Space Upstairs for Dublin Theatre Festival 2022.
    Animal Farm brilliantly examines the motifs of power and revolution. This production will examine inequality and the failures of the Irish State. It will take influence from the contemporary moment, sociology, pop culture, classic literature and post-dramatic theatre. It will be devised and adapted by the ensemble, using experimentation, theatricality and irreverence to explore questions of power and the ruling classes in Ireland.
    (August to October 2022)

    Decoys by Shaun DunneDecoys is a new work by documentary theatre artist Shaun Dunne, looking at the reintegration of sex offenders into the mainstream community.
    Written and performed by Shaun, this piece is heavily informed by a period of time he spent in the UK, volunteering with organisations that work to equip convicted offenders towards community living.(Development in June 2022, with a presentation in both The Mermaid Arts Centre and Project Arts Centre Cube as part of DTF in October 2022)
    If you'd like to discuss this further I would be happy to meet on Zoom over the coming weeks.
