We are hosting a multi-disciplinary panel discussion featuring established and emerging producers from across the arts sector in circus, theatre, dance and outdoors arts.

Topics covered will include the role of a producer, the responsibilities involved and any similarities / differences across the artforms. There will also be a conversation on producer support and the importance of mentoring and coaching for emerging producers.

Refreshments available – with time after the panel for more conversations and chats!

Then this opportunity is for you!

‍Each bursary is valued at €100 and can be used to cover your costs such as travel, food and

accommodation for attending Promenade events in Cork city on 16 and 17 September.

The floor is yours. You can apply by sending us a short video testimonial, a quick voice note recording, or a short written statement into why you should attend our industry events and the value it will add to your career development.
