24 Hour Theatre

If you think you would enjoy the manic creativity that comes from throwing a bunch of theatrical people into a room for a day with a script that was penned the night before and a showtime of 6pm that evening, then 24 Hour Theatre is for you! An amazing way to meet other theatre makers, hone your skills as an actor, writer or director, and be part of Galway Theatre Festival’s final staged event. Contact gtfvolunteers@gmail.com if you are interested.



In other news, the first meeting of Volition participants and JOLT mentors took place during the week (see evidence of rigorous preparation below) and after getting everyone in the same room we’re more excited than ever to be working with this fantastic bunch of artists. Their itinerary for the first month includes attendance at Galway Theatre Festival shows and workshops, Baboró‘s Delegate Programme and a series of TULCA tours and discussions. Keep an eye out for more updates on the Volition programme and in the meantime, enjoy all the wonderful festivals coming your way.
