Irish Theatre Institute invites applications from self-producing artists to participate in a two day training initiative on Wednesday 5th and Thursday 6th November 2014.

The aim of this two day intensive workshop is to better inform the self-producing artist about the practicalities of the production process and to equip artists with the tools required to make their practice more sustainable. On completion, participants should have a clearer understanding of the production process, strategic planning and management, marketing and the practical applications involved in budget creation and projection.

The course will cover essential skills for the self-producing artist including:

  • Strategic Planning
  • Developing a Producing Brief
  • Understanding your Finances
  • Budgeting
  • Knowing and Reaching your Audience
  • Insurance
  • Perfecting your Pitch
  • Scheduling and Running your Production
  • Documenting your Work

The training will have a maximum of 10 participants – up to two people from one company can apply to attend together (e.g. an artist and their producer).

Facilitated by Siobhán Bourke (Co-Director), Jane Daly (Co-Director) and Eláine Donnelly (General Manager).
