 ELEVATOR: Producer Supports & Mentoring a new Theatre Resource Sharing initiative  in association with Town Hall Theatre Galway

Irish Theatre Institute (ITI) welcomes applications from Producers for participation in ELEVATOR, a new 12 month Resource Sharing and mentoring initiative in association with Town Hall Theatre Galway. This new East/West partnership, funded by the Arts Council, will provide mentoring, strategic planning, training and networking opportunities for six emerging and mid-career Producers. Participants will be supported by administrative and infrastructural resources in two Producer Hubs, one located in Dublin (ITI) and one in Galway (at Town Hall Theatre). Participants will be provided with a stipend to allow them to see work by other artists and engage with networks in the partner city.

ELEVATOR will enable six producers to develop their expertise, skills and networks at a crucial point in their careers. Through an open call and application process, ITI will recruit six mentee Producers (three based in Dublin; three based in Galway) who will work with an assigned mentor. The emphasis of this capacity-building initiative will be the development of sustainable careers and creative opportunities. Following the open call, selection will be by shortlisting and interview. The successful candidates be announced in December 2016 and will begin the scheme in mid-January 2017.
