Collaboration Toolkit Launch


Galleria Napa

Presentation of a Guide to the Development of International Artistic Collaborations for Young People

Let's say you have an amazing and complex project in mind. You are eager to go through with it, but the thought of looking for collaborators, resources and money leaves you frustrated and discouraged.

We have gone through the whole procees, from an idea to implementation, and wrote a little step-by-step guidebook based on our experience, that might make a young creative's journey a bit easier. We would like to share it with you. Besides, this meeting is a great chance for creative communities of Rovaniemi and Cork (Ireland) to meet each other and exchange experiences and ideas.

The Collaborations Toolkit will be available in a limited hard copy edition as well as online at

The Collaborations Toolkit is the result of an 8 month European Strategic Partnership project between Irish theatre company Makeshift Ensemble and Finnish production company Postmodernsquare. The aim was to collect together the tools, insights, resources, tips that we found useful during the course of the development of a theatre production ‘Utopia Ltd.’ that premiered as part of the Cork Midsummer Festival in June 2016.
