Throughout 2021, while we wait to reopen our doors to audiences for live performances, the Watergate Theatre will support artistic work in development through a number of residencies, commissions and bursaries.

Our 2021 Artistic Programme will build on existing relationships and embark on new ones. Our primary focus will be on supporting the work of professional Kilkenny and non-Kilkenny based arts sector workers. Through collaboration and partnership the Watergate looks forward to participating in the presentation of this work to our valued audience.

This work is made possible with funding from Kilkenny County Council and The Arts Council of Ireland.
