Job Vacancies | Programme Curators at Dance Ireland

Dance Ireland are looking to engage three programme curators who will assist them in delivering aspects of our programme in the coming months. They are looking to work with creative, imaginative and highly motivated professionals eager to share their expertise, develop new learning and skills, and contribute to Dance Ireland’s work.
