A Note From Exco: June 2023

Dear IPO members,

We’d like to take this opportunity to celebrate the great success of the Get On Set Mentorship programme, which is currently wrapping up, and to thank all the industry producers who gave their time and imparted their valuable knowledge to their mentees. We also want to congratulate the mentees on their completion of the 10 week programme and to wish them well in all their future endeavours – we hope and trust this experience will stand you in good stead going forward! Please read our wrap-up piece below and stay tuned for our social media rollout on the programme.

We have announced Fringing, an important policy that will allow more work to be done for and within the industry, building capacity for the IPO to reach higher goals. We hope and trust you will invest in this journey with us. Read more on this below.

Excitingly, we have numerous opportunities listed under the opportunities tab in terms of funding opportunities, festival opportunities – many of which include benefits to members by way of free accreditation – read on for details.

Lastly, we would like to offer our sincere thanks to our outgoing Executive Director, Trish Downing, for her tireless work for the IPO. Trish, your dedication is appreciated, and we acknowledge the huge amount of value you have brought to our Policy Work as an organisation during your tenure, not least of which has been your dedication to the Amendment Bills. We could not have done all this important work without you! We wish you well as you embark on your next steps and once again, express our deep gratitude! Please read Trish’s outgoing letter under IPO news below.

Your IPO Exco
