  Great opportunity: Would you like to curate a programme of events for An Grianan Theatre

An Grianán Theatre and its partner venues in the Nasc Theatre Network have teamed up to present a Young Curators Festival programme across all eight venues in the network in June 2021.

They are looking for two young people to be the curators for An Grianán. Participants will be supported by a member of staff at An Grianán as well as receiving mentoring from two professional arts practitioners who will mentor you on programming and negotiating deals, and will assist you in establishing connections with artists.  

Those taking part will also engage with the young curator panels in the partner venues, sharing ideas and information on programming opportunities. It will begin with an introductory session at which three young curators will share their experience and learning from last year’s Young Curators Festival at the Backstage Theatre. Agreed expenses will be paid, and the Curators will be allocated a programme budget to manage.

Programmed by young people for young people, the festival aims to feature a high quality hybrid of online and live performance and workshops in a variety of disciplines such as theatre, spoken word, dance and music. All work will be selected with adaptability in mind, should COVID restrictions prevent any of the live programme from happening. 

If interested email Patricia McBride at by no later than 5.00pm on Monday, March 29, with a little bit about yourself and why you want to participate in this project (max 300 words).

Applicants should be between 18 to 29 years of age.
