  • A facilitated feedback session, pilot audience or focus group, depending on the stage of development of your idea, with our Youth Theatre members  (in person or via Zoom, as health and safety protocol allows)
  • A fee of €600

Here’s some feedback from one of last year’s PLAY & PRESENT participants, ALSA Productions who brought a work in progress of TALL TAIL to the Fitzgibbon theatre in 2019:

“We were so grateful to have the opportunity to avail of the Play and Present Scheme at Graffiti in 2019. Having access to the theatre gave us the space and freedom to explore our play during its development phase. Graffiti was able to facilitate workshops and work-in-progress sharings with young people which had a huge influence on our piece and really informed the finished product.”

If you are interested in taking part, please give us a ring on 021 439 7111 or email us at to obtain a short application form for completion before Friday 2nd October.

Awardees will be notified by Monday 19th October 2020

Please share with anyone who you think might benefit from taking part in our artist development bursary.
