Are you a theatre-maker or company programmed in this year’s Fringe?

Want to hear how programmers select work? Are you looking for real networking opportunities and a chance to pitch your show to venues and festivals? Want to take it one step further and start planning a tour? Irish Theatre Institute invites theatre and dance companies who are presenting work at Dublin Fringe Festival to its annual networking event, INFORMATION TOOLBOX. Running for the 12th consecutive year, it attracts presenters from across Ireland and brings hand-picked guests from international organisations right to you so that you can grow your network of connections. Here’s how it works:  

Presenter Profiles: Three programmers reveal how they curate and engage with emerging and independent artists.

One-to-ones: ITI matches you in bespoke meetings where you meet programmers to talk about creating a future for your show.

Things We Haven’t Made Yet: A pitch session where invited Irish artists introduce upcoming projects with an eye to securing development and touring partners.

Space is limited and must be pre-booked. Register by August 25 at to guarantee your place at this year’s event. First preference is given to artists presenting theatre and dance in Dublin Fringe Festival. For top tips in advance of INFORMATION TOOLBOX, follow Irish Theatre Institute on Facebook and Twitter.

Information Toolbox is funded by the Arts Council / An Chomhairle Ealaíon, Dublin City Council and Culture Ireland.
