axis Opportunities

#axisonline is a new season developed by the axis team to try1 L  1 and bring as much of our supports, work and programme online during these strange times.

#axisonline is also a way of us staying in touch and collaborating with our community in Ballymun and the wider areas we serve and engage with.

Through #axisonline we are also opening up our archives across social media highlighting our own work and the work of artists we work with and admire

#axisonline is an opportunity to take stock of where we are at right now and innovate around mechanisms for the public to be creative.

#axisonline is a way of us collaborating with and highlighting the great work that is being done by artists and arts centres around the country

#axisonline is an opportunity to highlight the importance of the live and tangible arts in our lives and in society, and in their enforced absence look at reframing relationships and the way artists engage with the public

Come take your place. You can still Dream Out Loud.

We are trying to keep #axisonline free to avail of and use but if you feel you can donate to the axis arts development fund you can do so HERE via our donate page

Axis All Areas Ticket offer The brilliant Scene and Heard Festival has started today in Smock Alley Theatre and runs to the end of the month. It is an amazing festival of new work across loads of genres. To celebrate this and to continue our support of new work and audiences we have purchased a dedicated festival pass under our ‘Axis All Areas’ audience scheme.  This means that there will be a FREE ticket available for EVERY SINGLE SCENE + HEARD SHOW (all 109 of them!) on a first come, first served basis from Smock Alley courtesy of axis We are keen to spread the word among folk who might not usually get the chance to catch new work and indeed the wider arts community.  Pop in or phone the Smock Alley box office on the day of the show you're interested in.  Please help to spread the word!

Six years ago our Arts Development Manager, Emma developed a new dance programme for the women of Ballymun. Over the years the programme has grown and now women from as far as Drogheda & Bray travel to Ballymun every week to be part of this unique project. Over 157 women (from 17-75+) have been part of THREADS over the years. Last year Emma handed the ‘baton’ to a colleague who now runs the programme.
