Premises & Theatre Space

Graffiti Premises

Fully equipped working theatre dedicated to theatre for and by young people.


With the generous support of The Department of Arts Sports & Tourism, Cork City Council and The Arts Council, this venue is now the only fully equipped working theatre outside of Dublin dedicated to theatre for and by young people.

The building also houses the administration of Graffiti, the Outreach Department and the Swortzell Studio Space. Graffiti hope to develop a Focus on Family programme in the theatre in the near future.
