About Irish Theatre Institute’s Artist Supports Programmes

ITI’s Six in the Attic provides theatre artists with space, time and practical resources coupled with the mentoring and advice services needed to explore, develop and make work. Through ongoing support and mentoring ITI offers these artists expert advice on a range of topics from networking and touring, funding schemes, financial management, artistic planning, and career development. On completing the SITA cycle artists are welcomed into the SITA Alumni group, with access to ongoing mentoring and career supports, as well as project management expertise.

Show in a Bag is an artist development initiative of Dublin Fringe Festival, Fishamble: The New Play Company and Irish Theatre Institute to resource theatre makers and actors. The first Show in a Bag initiative was established in 2010 to facilitate the creation of five new small scale, tourable shows which would highlight the talents and skills of performers making work for the Dublin Fringe Festival.
