Mentoring Programme

This programme, run by Kildare County Council and Riverbank Arts Centre, in association with Fishamble Theatre Company aims to support emerging writers and directors as they develop in their careers.

The programme, which started in January 2010 will take place over a period of ten months. 

The programme has two strands, one for writers and one for directors.

Emerging writer will work with Gavin Kostick, Literary officer with Fishamble Theatre Company, to look at different writing styles and techniques to assist their creative development.

Emerging directors will work with a series of professional directors to look at directing processes and techniques. This strand will be overseen by Jim Culleton, Artistic Director with Fishamble Theatre Company.

The key aim of this programme is to offer emerging talent a chance to explore, create and develop their talents in a supportive environment.
