Marina Market

One of the big events in the Theatre Forum calendar has always been our annual conference. We’ve used the last few years to think about how and why we do things and are moving away from our traditional conference to a more dynamic event. This year we’re going to be in the Marina Market in Cork on 18 & 19 October for two days of networking, discussions, sessions, chats, amazing food and an artistic programme curated by Cork Midsummer Festival.

We’re calling our event:

Tomorrow. Together
Amárach. Le chéile

This event will be a series of conversations interspersed with provocations both online and in person looking at what can we do now to make tomorrow better for artists, our sector, our society, and our planet.

Everyone is very welcome. We believe that freelance artists/arts workers should be in the room for all discussions about the future and inclusivity of our sector. Theatre Forum is offering a number of freelance artist/arts workers bursary places and we’re asking organisation members to invite one or more freelance artists/arts workers to Tomorrow. Together and to match our bursary.

Every ticket includes access to all sessions on both days, the evening artistic programme, dinner, and a €30 voucher to spend at the Marina Markets food stalls.
