Funded by the Arts Council Theatre Resource and Development Scheme 2022/23, presented in association with Project Arts Centre and Irish Theatre Institute.

We are delighted to announce that as part of the second series of sKēnographia we are running a series of informal gatherings, Coffee Spills (mornings) and Wine Spills (evenings). These are part of our original idea for sKēnographia, before the world took a turn in 2020 and we had to adapt, so we focused on the online masterclasses.

We are delighted to be able to go back to our initial aim to create a space for performance designers to gather together in an informal setting.

People suggested to run these gatherings around a topic but that’s entirely up to those who attend.

Coffee & Wine Spills are a chance for you to mingle with other designers and talk all-things-design (or whatever you want to talk about) and spill some coffee and / or wine!

The first Coffee Spills gathering will take place on 21st September 2022 at Irish Theatre Institute, 10:30am-1pm, and you can come and go as you wish.

So if you only have 30 minutes to pop-in we’ll be delighted to see you there even if briefly. We will provide tea, coffee, pastries and sandwiches!

PQ 2023 Ireland Curator Tom Creed will also attend COFFEE SPILLS to discuss the PQ 2023 project and process.

Please, RSVP here so we can organise the catering.

The first Wine Spills will take place ahead of the festive season.

Date: Wednesday 23rd November from 5pm to 9pm at The Dean Art Studios.


Join us at your best convenience. Looking forward to seeing you there!


*We plan to organise these sessions around the island of Ireland in future editions. This is our first pilot project and due to many factors we could only set them up in Dublin for now.
