See Here

The See Here scheme is specifically designed to support the inward travel of international promoters and programmers to see work in Ireland with a view to booking the work for their venue or festival. Applications are accepted on an ongoing basis. Priority is given to cases where the invitee will see a range of work by Irish artists e.g. during a festival, or where a number of artists/companies agree to present their work to international promoters over a fixed period of time.

 

The selection criteria which will apply to See Here applications include the quality and professional standard of the work proposed, the availability of the artist/company to tour the work over the following 18 months and the track record of the applicant in national and international touring.

 

Where an application is being made for presenter/s to see the work of a number of companies/individuals, one application should be submitted by an agreed applicant on behalf of all involved.  Receipt of applications will be acknowledged and a decision confirmed within four weeks of application. 

 

Successful applicants must complete a See Here Report Form following the visit and furnish evidence of expenditure in the form of receipts in order to receive payment.
