After 13 phenomenal years, Dramaturg Hanna Slӓttne is leaving Tinderbox.

There is no doubt Hanna’s commitment and passion to the arts has been a powerhouse for writers in Northern Ireland. Her sincere dedication to new writing has provided innumerable opportunities, mentorship and programmes to emerging and established playwrights, with much of the work receiving awards and critical acclaim. Hanna inspired everyone to reach their fullest creative potential through her ambitious creative pathways and rigorous Dramaturgical processes. She filled the Northern Ireland Arts sector with ambitious and exciting projects, such as the hugely successful Pick’n’Mix festival.

Hanna will be sorely missed by everyone at Tinderbox, but thankfully will continue to passionately support the arts in Northern Ireland through her freelance career. We look forward to collaborating with Hanna again in the future and wish her the very best of luck with her new adventure.
