Now in his third year at the helm of the Project Arts Centre, Cian O’Brien talks about his favourite part of the job.
“In addition to us being a venue, we run a huge artist support programme”, he begins. “That’s the big interest for me. I love coming into work in the mornings – the fact that I get to work with artists every day is really exciting.”
The Project’s draw is that it’s multidisciplinary, and its theatre is often experimental. “When the Project was set up back in 1967, it was led by artists, so it’s still an artist collective technically”, Cian explains. “There is a board, but the membership of artists sits above that.”
