Baboro International Festival for the Arts for Children

Organization Overview
Baboró is Ireland’s flagship International Arts Festival for Children and Families. The festival presents a week of Irish and International work for children and families. The festival provides access to quality work from a growing number of Irish companies creating work for children and families. At the heart of the organization’s activities is access to the arts for all children, regardless of their geographic, economic, physical, intellectual, or cultural status.

They get to interact with lots of different people, from the artistic director, website designer, and brochure designer, to the performing companies and artists.
