ITI Awarded a 2023 Community Heritage Grant

Irish Theatre Institute is delighted to announce the awarding of Community Heritage Grant Scheme 2023 funding from The Heritage Council of Ireland for the Preservation and Illumination of PLAYOGRAPHYIreland. 

This project will ensure that necessary and urgent work can be undertaken on PLAYOGRAPHYIreland with our Web Developers (DotDash). This will also include a new and exciting section of the website called ‘Illuminating the Database’. This pilot will look at the addition of photographs to the database on a limited number of entries. The addition of photographs will expand the relevance of Playography to set and costume designers, enhance the experience all all users, and deepen the historic and contemporary significance of the database. 

We will also be hosting a free event in Smock Alley Theatre on Wednesday 16th August during Heritage Week to celebrate Playography called A Career in Parts. Click here for more information on A Career in Parts and to book your ticket. 

Irish Theatre Institute is core funded by The Arts Council | An Chomhairle Ealaíon and initial website work on Playography was funded by their Capacity Building Scheme,
