Bealtaine is Ireland’s national festival celebrating the arts and creativity as we age. Age & Opportunity, which runs the festival, is seeking tenders from suitably qualified individuals or organisations to provide performing arts services for Bealtaine Festival between Autumn 2021 – May 2024.

  • debate and discourse around key cultural issues impacting on older people and other opportunities to influence national and international policy.

The performing arts programmer will work with the Artistic Director of the festival to develop, manage and promote the performing arts programme of the Bealtaine Festival 2022-2025.

Interested parties should submit a proposal to Eva Griffin, Arts Programme Administrator at arts@ageandopportunity.ie by 12 noon on Friday 16 July 2021. *Deadline extended to Friday 30 July 2021*
