LK Shields are a leading Irish corporate and commercial law firm with offices in Dublin and Galway, who are keen to develop a CSR strategy incorporating workplace culture, skills development and staff engagement, with the aim of assisting young adults to gain access to employment.

In 2019 – 2020, LK Shields will work with Business to Arts and the Creative Ireland Programme’s National Creativity Fund to create an artist-in-residence (performance artist) programme in the Galway area. During the programme, a combination of performance-based and education-based workshops will be delivered to young adults in a community organisation or students in third-level education, to develop key skills.

It is anticipated the AR Programme will start in Autumn 2019, with a concluding showcase to be scheduled for Spring/Summer 2020.

An Open Call application process (June/July 2019) was held to select the performance artist/theatre practitioner.

The selected performance artist/theatre practitioner will be announced in October 2019.
