Solstice is a creative hub for the arts in the county of Meath. We are inviting conversations with artists and companies continuing the support of our residential practice programme entitled Household. We want work, and the creation of new work to emanate from our building, and in doing so stimulate mindful connections with audiences and communities in the county. We also want to support the development of new work within our excellent facilities here. Sometimes this will be about staff and facility support, other times this will be about collaborative production. After seven years of residential practice at the centre, we happily have no fixed ideas of what that might be, what that might entail, or how long it should be, in order that we remain consistently fresh to new thinking of what our household in the palindrome can be, and what we make together.

To discuss further, please contact Belinda Quirke, Artistic Director/CEO

Solstice Arts Centre is an award winning multidisciplinary arts centre in Navan, Co. Meath. From January 2008, Tall Tales Theatre Company programmed all activities from Solstice Arts Centre, Navan providing for new and original theatre production, professional development and community projects in Co. Meath. They commissioned, developed and produced new Irish work, creating a programme of activity that was both artistically exciting and accessible. Solstice Arts centre successfully commissioned “Moment” by Deirdre Kinahan and co-produced “Maisy Daly’s Rainbow”, “Chance”, “Bogboy”, “Halcyon Days of which “Moment”, “Bogboy” and “These Halcyon Days” (with Landmark Productions) have toured internationally. Moment (2009) continues to be staged globally.
