Spotlight on European Funding at Baboro International Arts Festival for Children – Wednesday 14 October
We are collaborating with Baboró in their Talking About and Spotlight Series to bring you a panel discussion from Irish and international experts to talk about international projects and European funding. Are you trying to get your hands on European funding for a new work? Are European funded projects accessible to Irish artists? Is the funding worth the effort? Hear first hand experiences of European projects at this free event. Chaired by Dani Gill of Cúirt, the panel will include Marc MacLochlainn (Branar), Ingrid Wolff (Festival 2 Turven Hoog, Netherlands), Stephen Midlane (Polka Theatre UK) and Orla Kenny (Kids’ Own/Practice.ie). The discussion will be followed by a networking wine reception.
Date: 14 October 2015, 6.30pm
Location: Mick Lally Theatre, Druid Lane, Galway
