Creative Lab

We are excited to announce the launch of our first professional “Creative Lab”.  


Providing 4 Fermanagh Omagh based performing artists with a paid opportunity to investigate, explore and develop a creative idea that they are interested in progressing.


Overseen and supported by Artistic Director Dylan Quinn, participants will engage in a three day creative process spread over a one month period. Dates will be confirmed and agreed upon by the participating group once all members have been confirmed. Creative Lab will involve practical and creative exercises and processes that will support the development of each proposed idea. Participants will be supported in formatting a proposal to submit a funding application to further progress their idea. 


Creative Lab is designed for professional artists who have either created, produced or presented  professional performance work or completed professional training. Each participant will be paid a contribution of £500 for 3 days of engagement.  Support with child care and travel can be provide if required. 


If you are interested in finding out further information or applying to participate in Creative Lab please contact or call 02866328686.


Applicants are asked to submit a brief proposal submission alongside their CV and by email and selection will be undertaken by a member of staff and board member from DQDT. The proposal does not need to be more than a short paragraph and can be for a specific project you wish to explore or a process of professional practice. The focus of the Lab is on the commitment to professional creative practice rather than any single project idea.
