GOVERNANCE

Irish Theatre Institute (ITI) is a not for profit theatre resource organisation and Registered Charity (CHY 20847), governed by a Board of Directors (see Board and Patrons page for further details). 

Our Mission

ITI nurtures, promotes and drives the ambition of Irish theatre makers and Irish theatre, from its grassroots beginnings to its presentation on the world stage.

We provide mentoring, training and continuing professional development for theatre makers, from writers and performers to producers, directors, behind-the-scenes staff and company managers. We run workshops and seminars. We offer artistic and creative support and practical advice. We provide information on everything including funding, budgeting, networking and resource sharing, ensuring it is easily accessible to everyone, from emerging talents to established artists.

Mindful of the nation’s history and the great traditions of Irish storytelling and performance, we gather, host and share information on the story of theatre in Ireland, digitally on tailor-made websites and searchable databases as well as in physical reports and materials.

Away from the spotlight, we care about Dignity at Work issues, working conditions and the welfare of theatre makers, and are committed to leading through good practice and example.

We are passionate about the future. We support new work and new producing opportunities as theatre reaches out to new audiences, not only in Ireland but across the globe, engaging audiences and enriching people’s lives through presentations that reflect changes in Ireland’s social, cultural and demographic landscape.
