Artists & Delegates

Baboró’s visiting delegate programme welcomes creators, artists, producers, presenters, programmers, directors and educators from Ireland and beyond to Galway for one week of high quality, multidisciplinary work for children.

Baboró International Arts Festival for Children is Ireland’s flagship international arts festival devoted exclusively to children and families. Each year we present an electric mix of the highest quality Irish and international work for audiences from zero to a hundred.  As a Small Size partner Baboró is an advocate of creative art for Early Years, with our Festival featuring a rich programme of work for the under sixes.

As a Visiting Delegate, you receive the following benefits

  • A comprehensive information and contacts pack, telling you everything you
    need to know for your Baboró experience and stay in Galway. Find information on participating companies, full show descriptions and a list of fellow visiting delegates. The pack also serves as a visitor’s guide to Galway, giving information on the city and listing local restaurants and businesses.
  • A schedule of activities tailored to your visit, including 1 ticket per show and 1 ticket per discussion.

Our Festival is a hub for artists and delegates to meet Irish and international friends and colleagues, old and new.  A small city of only 80,000, Galway is known for being easy to navigate, with most performance spaces within walking distance of one another. Baboró is embraced and much loved by the local community, and visitors are guaranteed a warm welcome not just from Festival staff and volunteers, but the locals too!

We look forward to welcoming you!

A good strong programme, and certainly worth the trip!
