The ISACS Network in partnership with Circusful is delighted to present the first Training Session 2024, for ISACS members only, with International Festival Programmer Dan Le Man, kindly supported by The Crescent Arts Centre, Belfast.
This session will be held in person, in Belfast, at The Crescent Arts Centre, 2 – 4 University Road, on Sunday, 7th of January.
Workshop from 2pm – 5pm. Join us from 1:30 pm for some tea, coffee and chats.
What will the session be about?
Contacting a festival, event, agent or a professional producer is like going on a first date. They make decisions about whether you get to meet them again based on speed and clarity of communication, your personality, the quality of your show visuals, online presence, etc. It’s more than just the quality of your show. Put your best foot forward and stand out from the crowd by knowing how to pitch your show so you’ll get more quality bookings and leads. We’ll deal with common mistakes made during an approach to bookers via email, through social media and in online application forms so it’s easier for producers, festivals and organisers to book you.
