We’re living in an extraordinary time. It feels like the door has opened for women in a way that it never has for the generations before us. No doubt, we still have a long way to go to right the great imbalance of energy and power in our world. To the degree we can manifest our creative potential, the more we will enable the generations that follow us.  

This week long workshop invites women artists across disciplines to tap into the well of their creative power and nurture what is looking to emerge from it.  

Theatre-maker and performer Annie Ryan has invited marvelously expert guest teachers of yoga, meditation, voice work, movement technique and ensemble improvisation and play, offering deeply nourishing practices to restore and empower yourself in your life and your work. 

Any questions, please ask.

Over the past two years, The Corn Exchange has worked closely with nine other Irish Theatre organisations to both identify, and strive to redress, practices of gender inequality across the sector.

To this end, we are delighted to publish our Gender Equality Policy to coincide with the “Gender Equality in Practice” event which Minister of Culture, Heritage and the Gaeltacht Josepha Madigan TD will launch at The Lir National Academy of Dramatic Art today.

The ten organisations are The Abbey Theatre, Cork Midsummer Festival, Corn Exchange Theatre Company, Druid Theatre, Everyman Palace Theatre, Dublin Theatre Festival, Fishamble: The New Play Company, The Gate Theatre, The Lir Academy and Rough Magic Theatre Company.
