In 2018 and 2019, we put calls out for communities who felt marginalised and silenced to take part in our 5×5 development series. The responses have been overwhelming and we have been honoured to share the Peacock Stage with ten community projects over the past two years.

We are proud to announce that 5×5 will return for 2020, supported by The Ireland Funds.

We are once again inviting citizens from all communities to submit an idea or project that they want to develop. We want to hear from you – we want to hear your stories.

Do you feel that your community is underrepresented on the Irish stage?

Do you think your voice has not been heard by national organisations?

Do you want to develop a new idea that will give voice to your community?

Do you have a story to tell?

We will choose 5 of these projects and provide you with 5 days’ worth of space, technical assistance and €5,000 to explore this project.

5×5 2020 will run over the following five weeks:

  • 10 – 14 February 2020
  • 17 – 21 February 2020
  • 24 – 28 February 2020
  • 2 – 6 March 2020
  • 9 – 13 March 2020

5×5 is supported by The Ireland Funds.
