Statement from Jim Culleton, Artistic Director of Fishamble, on #WakingTheFeminists

WTFeministsWaking the Feminists is such an impressive and thought-provoking campaign. It has sparked necessary and productive discussions, including in Fishamble, where we are very proud of our relationship with many female playwrights and theatre artists.

We are committed to reviewing our commissioning and play development processes to ensure fully equal opportunities exist for both female and male playwrights, as well as other theatre artists and practitioners. This is currently under discussion at executive and board level and we look forward to engaging with Waking the Feminists as part of that review in the future.
