The Axis Chats

These are a series of interviews with performers, makers, directors, artists, designers, technicians and those that work in the arts in Ireland, from Ballymun and beyond.

Some you will know, some you might not but all have a great story to tell

It will be a trip behind the curtains to get an insight into the world of the arts and the people that work in it. We will talk to them about their work, what drives and inspires them, why they do what they do and the importance of the arts.
