Artist office at FRINGE LAB: apply now

We have a free, shared office space here at Fringe HQ that we offer to artists to make their own. Interested?

We want to hear from artists / producers / a company or a collective who could make good use of an office space at Fringe on Sycamore Street in Temple Bar from March 2018 – March 2019. It’s a brilliant and busy building full of artists and festival fun.

It’s a no-frills desk space so your work must be compact – there isn’t much scope for storage. You’ll be part of one of the buzziest communal workspaces around!

“Being artist in residence at Dublin Fringe Festival was an absolute privilege. It provided me with a physical space in which to work in the form of an office that I could access 24/7, as a freelance practitioner that's vital. More than that though I had access to the amazing Fringe Team who supported my practice through conversation, advice, mentoring and solidarity” – Veronica Dyas, Artist (Artist office 2017)

“Having use of the artists office has been invaluable to Red Bear, giving us a base where we could effectively block out the world and plan the next few years, as well as having a permanent meeting place where we could invite other artists. Having access to a place in the city centre to write, 24 hours has been a huge advantage. A place to go to stop us hurtling from coffee shop to coffee shop and somewhere to hang a calendar and make a coffee. A home for work” – Red Bear Productions (Artist office 2017)

Applications are accepted from artists, producers, companies or collectives of any kind. There is one desk available, but we’re open to two company members sharing it. If you have any questions, please contact
