Funded by the Arts Council Artist in the Community Scheme
Irish Aphasia Theatre (IAT) is a socially engaged theatre and arts and health company working in professional theatre, community and health settings. IAT uses theatre to artistically engage, train, facilitate and produce the work of participants who have cognitive, communication and physical disabilities. In particular, IAT works with participants who have aphasia and/or acquired brain injuries related to ageing conditions and other brain traumas. Irish Aphasia Theatre was founded by theatre director, writer and facilitator, Gráinne Hallahan, in 2018. This project was funded by the Arts Council’s Artist in the Community Scheme Project Realisation award and Fingal County Council Arts Office.
