Creative Development

Baboró is keen to support artists and practitioners interested in working in the field of creative arts for children in Ireland. 

Baboró believes in encouraging and supporting artists to explore the wonderful world of the creative arts for children. Baboró provides opportunities for artists to seek advice, partake in professional development courses and from time to time, to travel abroad to see work. Whether you are an emerging artist, a student or an established artist interested in making work for children, please don’t hesitate to get in touch.

Associate Artists

Baboró has worked with many artists over the years who share a passion for making quality work for children. You can learn more about one of our current Associate Artists here.

Professional Development

From time to time Baboró organises professional development opportunities for artists and educators as part of Baboró festival programme.

Industry Events

Our annual festival programme includes industry talks and networking events for artists, students and educators. We also offer Delegate Passes during festival time.


Baboró hosts several placements throughout the year for those interested in pursuing a career in the arts. If you are looking for a placement opportunity to gain valuable experience or have a particular project in mind please don’t hesitate to contact us.
