Theatrical Strategies

Theatre Forum is organising a meeting on Tuesday 28 July in the Peacock Theatre in Dublin to tackle strategies for theatre in tough economic times.

It is open to members and non-members alike, but please RSVP to theatreforum[at]ireland.com if you wish to attend.

Here is a rough schedule:

14.30 - 15.00

15.00 - 15.30
The Big Picture, Chaired by Fergal McGrath, Town Hall Theatre Galway

15.30 - 16:45
Divide into three groups with different provocative questions and facilitators:

- How to keep productivity up and what collaborative activities might assist. Chaired by Una Carmody, Director Arts Audience

- The Arts Council could be looking at a cut of between 25 - 50% for 2010. If this the figure is possible, and given the theatre discussion document, what are the best five pieces of advice the sector can give the Arts Council? Chaired by Fergal McGrath, Town Hall Theatre Galway

- Funded and Unfunded - how to work together, Chaired by Jo Mangan, Performance Corporation and Cian O'Brien, Rough Magic Theatre Company
