Facebook campaign for Irish arts workers

Members of Theatre Forum are leading the way to establish a series of Facebook group pages for the various constituencies across the country. The idea was mooted at the recent Theatre Forum annual conference, and so far 26 groups have been formed (a great summary of this year’s lively conference was written by Sara Keating in the Irish Times).

The aim is for the campaign to raise awareness for councillors and TDs of how many arts workers live in their constituencies, and support ongoing initiatives to support the arts.
