Aisling Programme Artist Opportunities 2023

As part of the Aisling Programme, Smashing Times are inviting Irish language speaking artists to take part in the annual international Dublin Arts and Human Rights festival taking place from 13 to 22 October 2023.

Artists have the opportunity to showcase two to three pieces of work, highlighting themes of human rights, equality and diversity. After the showcase, the artists will form a panel for an open discussion on the use of Irish language in promoting human rights, with audience members encouraged to join in. Artists may submit written or audio visual work to be platformed by Smashing Times or may wish to perform themselves.

We accept all work in all artforms including theatre, film, poetry, spoken word, and literature as Gaeilge and will offer a fee to those artists whose work is selected.
