Artists and Presenters engage over One-to-one conversations at Information Toolbox '16

Information Toolbox is the key networking opportunity during Dublin Fringe Festival, for theatre and dance makers to pitch their work to venues and festivals, funding agencies and resource organisations from across Ireland and internationally.

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. Running for the 12th consecutive year, Information Toolbox 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 and One-to-ones | Wood Quay Venue | 15th Sept, 09:00 

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.

Show in a Bag Showcase: a specially programmed showcase event for national and international venue managers and programmers (invite only).


•  Things We Haven’t Made Yet | The Lir Studio 1 | 16th Sept, 11:00

A pitch session where Irish artists introduce upcoming projects with an eye to securing development and touring partners.



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