Town Hall Theatre Galway this week announced Lucy Birmingham, Tara Mackin and Noel Minogue as the three young people who will participate in the NASC Network Young Curators programme for 2023/24.

The curators were selected on the basis that they were from, live in or have a strong connection to Galway (city or county) and its communities; had a passion for the arts and for attending performance; enjoyed working with a small team; liked organising events and making things happen; and being able to make the commitment to the programme if selected. The project is about programming and producing creative work in the performing arts - selecting shows that they may have seen for Town Hall Theatre’s programme of events or making a show in collaboration with the young curators in other venues.
