Irish Theatre Institute (ITI) requires an experienced Project Manager to manage the planning and delivery of Speak Up & Call It Out Phase II, a programme of sectoral supports, training and an event.


In 2018, Irish Theatre Institute (ITI) curated, managed and delivered Speak Up & Call It Out, an initiative to address abuse of power in the Irish theatre sector, led by ITI and supported by the Department of Culture, Heritage and the Gaeltacht (DCH&G). Speak Up & Call It Out was designed for everyone working in Irish theatre including actors, writers, directors, designers, technicians, production and stage managers, independent producers and administrators as well as theatre collectives, major theatre organisations, venues and performing arts festivals. Irish theatre came together to discuss and identify initiatives to begin cultural change in behaviour at work. In October 2018, a Code of Behaviour for Irish Theatre was ratified by the sector at an event held in Project Arts Centre, Dublin.

In 2020, ITI will deliver Phase II through a programme of research-led monitoring and evaluation of the sectoral implementation of Code of Behaviour; sectoral training initiatives and supports; and a theatre sector Speak Up Meeting. The Project Manager will work with the Co-Directors, DCH&G, key stakeholders and the sector (both individual artists and organisations) to coordinate and deliver Phase II.
