Festival Mentoring

**Applications are now closed for Baboró's 2017 Festival Mentoring**

Baboró's Festival Mentoring programme is aimed at artists and creatives at any stage of their career, including those with an established career, who have never before made work for children. 

As part of the 2017 programme, participants received mentoring from two highly experienced individuals from the sector; 

Phil Kingston, Community and Education Manager at the Abbey Theatre and 

Maria Fleming, Chair of Theatre for Young Audiences Ireland (TYAI) and Freelance Producer. 

The objective is that artists will be inspired to make work for babies, children and young people in Ireland, having been exposed to world-class Irish and International work during the festival.

  • Closing date for receipt of applications was midday 25 September 2017.
