You are invited to join us for PITCH, a mentoring programme supported by Culture Ireland, created to help develop artists skills in delivering professional pitches about their work to programmers, presenters and stakeholders.
This years artists were chosen by Spraoi from the applications to the NEST programme. Their idea was considered to be interesting and exciting with potential for further development.
The chosen three artists are:
- Caoimhe Dunn
- Claire Sheehan
- Jessica Doolin
Spectators are welcome to view PITCH 2020 via ZOOM, all you need to do is register for your place through Eventbrite→
What this years PITCH artists hope for:
Getting the chance to take part in PITCH gives me the impetus to focus and bring an idea further along the road to creation. I want to up my game, learn as much as I can and develop my own work. Much of my recent work has focused on community led parades and spectacle – I want a chance to develop my own pieces, to push myself creatively and to showcase my own variety of skills.
My hope for PITCH is to break through to new levels in the process of creating an idea for a performance piece. To have an idea in ones head is just one piece of this and it would be incredible to work with experienced and talented creatives to help make this idea a reality.
Through PITCH, I hope to gain the skills and the confidence to convey clearly my visual and performance concepts to potential programmers, festival bookers and stakeholders. I hope to learn tips to grow enthusiasm and excitement in others, which inspire them to support my work, my ideas and my practice and therefore help me to develop my full potential professionally.
