This February we will be hosting a series of workshops and discussions, as outlined at our recent meeting in the Town Hall Theatre. While we are still ironing out the finer details, the start of the month is shaping up like this:

** Saturday 9th Feb
10am – 12 noon – Group discussion on Creativity: Inspiration, Methods and Realisation led by a local professional theatre maker

This group discussion will give people the chance to discuss their work and methods, meet other practitioners and learn from an experienced professional. It may be the first in a series of discussions of this nature.

noon – 12:45 – Break

12:45 – 1:30 – Presentation on Building Working Relationships with Jane Daly (Irish Theatre Institute)

1:45 – 2:45 – Table workshop with Jen Coppinger (independent Producer) on Producing Independent Theatre

3 – 3:45 – Info clinic with David Parnell (Arts Council) on funding strands and applications for emerging theatre

3:45 – 4:15 – Tea break

4:15 – 5:30 – Panel discussion (title & panel TBA)

The whole day of workshops costs €10. You will be given a ticket on the day which grants you access to every event and these will be checked on the door. If you can only make one event, or three, or all, the price is still €10.

Coming up

** Friday 15th Feb
The award-winning production of Follow at the Town Hall Theatre with a post-show discussion.

** Saturday 16th Feb TBC
Workshop in devising and sound design with WillFredd (creators of Follow)
