Theatre Making and Citizenship Cork is delighted to partner with the Abbey Theatre in the delivery of a fortnight of creative workshops.

“Best 10 weeks ever!” – Spring 2023 participant feedback

“TMACC provided me with fun and loving memories that I will keep for many years to come. It allowed me to meet new and familiar faces, experience the creation and thought process of script making and a general view on acting itself. TMACC provided a perfect balance of warmups, games, acting, and writing as well to allow everyone to enjoy something. What was most impressive to me was the feeling of being heard in such a place of diversity. I never once felt out of place … and would recommend this opportunity to any theatre lovers I know.” – Spring 2023 participant feedback

Summer 2023 – The Everyman continues our dedicated engagement programme with a free, fun, creative youth-led programme for 15 young people aged 16–20 years!

A fortnight of daytime sessions, where young people are introduced to cultural citizenship and theatre through conversation, engagement and creation.

Participants are supported through dedicated engagement to become theatre makers themselves – explore writing, devising, designing, technical craft and performance as well as engaging with live theatre and performance.

At the heart of this project is the role of theatre and how young people can shape the future of accessible theatre in Ireland.


A fortnight of daytime in-person sessions, led by experienced drama facilitators and supported by a youth worker


From Mon 26 Jun to Fri 7 Jul, 11AM–1PM & 2–4PM (lunch included)


The Everyman, McCurtain Street & Beyond!
