The Arts Council in partnership with Drama and Theatre Studies, University of Galway and Creative Europe Desk Ireland are providing a limited number of free tickets for artists to attend the FESTIVAL MAKERS Conference on Thursday 11 and Friday 12 May 2023 in Galway.

Tickets will be made available to individual artists; in particular, those making work in a festival context in order to provide networking opportunities with festivals. Artists will also have the opportunity to provide their perspective in panel discussions over the course of the two days.

Free Artist Tickets will be allocated on a ‘first-come first-served’ basis. Only one ticket is allowed per person. Free Artist Tickets will only be made available to individual artists making work in a festival context; festival organisations cannot apply but can purchase tickets using the ticketing link above.
