Become a Local Business Patron for Where We Live 2020

Where We Live is an explosion of new work from THISISPOPBABY that interrogates and celebrates what it means and how it feels to live in Dublin and Ireland right now, from some of the best storytellers and makers on the Island.

We’re looking for Business Patrons in inner-city Dublin to support the Festival, with all funds going towards bringing the festival to full production and in turn bringing our hopes and dreams for the festival to life. We’re reaching out to you because you know what it means to exist and do business in this Dublin and we really believe that the topics that we cover in the festival will resonate with you on a personal and professional level.

Local Business Patrons will help us to fund:

1. Pay It Forward with a Free Ticketing Scheme, we would love to make complimentary tickets available for every event, to be given to those who could not otherwise afford to attend and who are directly affected by the stories we are telling. We are committed to reaching audiences from as wide a community as possible and especially people challenged by issues around creating a home, including those aided by Focus Ireland.

2. Irish Sign Language Performances, we would like to offer accessible performances for audience members who are deaf or hard of hearing to our signature shows, SHIT and Hothouse – which costs €1500 for an interpreter to prep for each show and then sign at each. Access for people of all abilities is a central consideration for us when we plan our projects; we like to keep a keen eye on ensuring safety and comfort for everyone who wishes to participate in our events!

LOCAL BUSINESS PATRONS will become part of the THISISPOPBABY family for the duration of the festival and play an integral role in helping us realise our vision – working with artists to electrify audiences while continuing to increase access to, and engagement with our work.
