All Ireland Performing Arts Conference (APAC) 2016
Theatre Forum and Theatre NI’s fifth all-Island conference takes place from 15 - 16 June in the Town Hall Theatre, Galway. NAYD will be among the contributors. The conference is titled I.We.Them.Us.
The conference will examine how individual and collective purpose shapes our industry and artform and through this, cultural identity or identities for the future. Speakers, panellists and delegates will also take close looks at Them and Us distinctions considering social mobility, replacing ourselves and the longevity of a career in the arts, all the time looking for new ways of collaborating. The final session asks a key question: what do the next one hundred years hold for performing arts on the island? In this forthright programme curated by Ali FitzGibbon, you’ll hear the views of artists, arts workers and activists.
NAYD will be participating in a series of panel discussions on June 16 looking at how we future proof our sector through entry-level opportunities, training and internships. Representing NAYD will be Research and Development Officer, Rhona Dunnett.
