Casting Workshops
Ardán is hosting a free casting workshop for all 18+ d/Deaf and Hard of Hearing actors to learn about casting in Film and TV on Sunday March 10th from 1-3pm, online on Zoom.

Ardán, Coimisiún na Meán, and the Irish Deaf Society are presenting this workshop as part of the second edition of the All-Abilities casting series. This workshop will be hosted by Katy Moylan-Shorten, casting director at Ali Coffey Casting, and actor and Irish sign language interpreter Shelley Gibson.

This is an opportunity for new, entry and emerging d/Deaf, and Hard of Hearing actors in film and TV. 

The objective of this online webinar is to learn more about and demystify the casting process. These informal and accessible sessions will support d/Deaf and Hard of Hearing performers in learning more about casting and auditions.

  • Practical advice for preparing self-tapes,  
  • How to find out about casting opportunities,  
  • Preparing for auditions,  
  • How to avail of any supports you might need, and how to communicate your access needs to casting directors to ensure you have what you need.   

When and where will the workshop be happening?
