ELEVATOR was ITI’s Resource Sharing initiative in association with Town Hall Theatre Galway which ran from 2017-2019 This East/West partnership, funded by the Arts Council, provided mentoring, strategic planning, exchange and training opportunities for emerging producers and was supported by administrative and infrastructural resources. Participants were provided with a stipend to allow them to see work by other artists and engage with networks in the partner city.

ELEVATOR was a catalyst for producers to develop their expertise, skills and networks at a crucial point in their careers. The emphasis was on collaboration, mentorship, networking, up-skilling and touring. Through an open call and application process, ITI recruited mentee producers, each of whom had existing relationships with artists/companies or existing projects to participate in the scheme.
