Irish Theatre Institute (ITI) is pleased to announce the Spring/Summer 2021 ACCELERATE: Artist Support Programme.

In 2020, ITI reached over 1,000 independent theatre artists and workers through its Covid response online information sessions and workshops. These information sessions addressed some of the issues that arose for the sector during government restrictions and offered practical supports, networking, and information. (You can access past information sessions on ITI’s YouTube channel here).
