Read about our 2017 participants

Pathways to Production is a artist support programme led by Baboró, who has partnered with Druid and the Mick Lally Theatre, Branar Téatar do Phaistí and Galway Theatre Festival, to support artists and young companies to develop their ideas with a view to presenting a full performance piece.

What GROW ‘Pathways to Production’ offers:

  • Space and time allowing artists to develop their ideas in a supportive environment
  • Successful applicants will receive a bursary of €2,200 to further the development of their project
  • Access to world-class work for children at Baboró International Arts Festival for Children, October 2018
  • Opportunities to attend professional workshops and industry discussions at the Baboró Festival
  • Access to venues, audiences, marketing and fundraising expertise
  • Opportunities to share ideas and concepts in a safe, supportive environment
  • Feedback via Liz Lerman’s Critical Response Process Method – a widely-recognised method that nurtures the development of artistic works-in-progress through a facilitated dialogue between artists, peers, and audiences
  • Access to support with recording your work via photography and videography

The exciting scheme involves workshops, sharing of works-in-progress with peers, as well as support in developing funding strategies. Baboró, Druid and the Mick Lally Theatre, Branar Téatar de Phaistí and Galway Theatre Festival will make our collective organisational experience and resources available to participants.

  • The Pathways to Production programme runs from October 2018 to October 2019.

Baboró is delighted to have The Irish Theatre Institute (ITI) partnering on Pathways to Production in an advisory capacity.

Funded by The Arts Council / An Comhairle Ealaíon Theatre Artist Development scheme.

Please Note: It is only possible to apply for either Pathways to Production or the Baboró Festival Mentoring programme in 2018, and not both.
