Meet The Interns!

Hello and welcome to Galway Theatre Festival 2021! We are so thrilled for you to experience this amazing festival. 

Who are “we” you ask? We are the interns, Laura and Noel! We are both postgrad students at NUI Galway this year, and we are so excited to help the GTF team put this fantastic festival together. In true Millennial fashion, we’re going to blog about our experience! We’re going to talk about what it is like to be a digital intern this year, some of the things we are researching like technology and accessibility, and our thoughts on some of the cool shows that we get to see!
