We at Baboró enjoy working with like-minded people on collaborative projects. We love to collaborate with artists, educators, funders, sponsors, venues - in fact anyone who shares our passion for the importance of creativity in the lives of children!
We are involved in creative partnerships at home in Galway, all over Ireland, in Europe and beyond. Baboró would like to further strengthen and expand our partnerships and collaborations across the sector in order to position Baboró as one of the foremost players in the field of arts provision for all children in Ireland.
