IIP Placements in Ireland
Baboro International Arts Festival for Children
Location: Galway, Ireland
Baboró International Arts Festival for Children is Ireland’s flagship international arts festival devoted exclusively to children and families. It brings the most diverse selection of world-class events from Ireland and around the world to its annual one-week festival in Galway each October. The IIP intern will be an essential part of their team as they prepare for their 16th annual festival. The IIP intern will be responsible for updating and developing the Welcome Pack for Artists and Delegates, working on the Google AdWords campaign, updating the Baboró website with Festival information, conducting web research for Baboró, and other duties as they arise. The IIP intern will have the opportunity to develop additional projects in line with the needs of the 2014 Festival. IIP candidates with an interest in the arts are encouraged to apply. One placement has been established for an International Internship Program (IIP) intern. View a PowerPoint presentation (.pdf) by a past intern.
