Making Regional Connections: Pathways to Production Artists meet Presenters

This event has now ended. You can view the full recording above.

Baboró has a long history of mentoring and supporting artists, creatives and educators who are exploring and developing work for young audiences, or are interested in doing so. GROW: Pathways to Production is an annual programme which aims to facilitate artists' development from the kernel of an idea, through concept development, to project planning, organising funding strategies, and ultimately to a sharing of the work at Galway Theatre Festival and Baboró. We work with partners Branar Téater de Pháistí, Galway Theatre Festival, Druid Theatre Company, Mick Lally Theatre and Irish Theatre Institute to deliver the year long programme.

This year Baboró has asked six Pathways to Production artists to meet with presenters from venues and festivals in Ireland and the UK. We recognise that international touring models have been suspended and it’s time to look closer to home to both develop and present work. This is an opportunity for these artists to meet presenters, expand their networks and share their ideas of how they would like to make work in the future. We hope that these conversations might spawn some interesting connections, pique some interest in future collaborations or even future presentation opportunities in our region.

This event is by invitation only but if you are a presenter or programmer in Ireland or the UK and would like to participate please email

Chaired by Marc MacLochlainn, Artistic Director of Branar Téatar do Pháistí
