Women in Animation Ireland: Creative Cookout

In August 2019, Women in Animation Ireland held their annual Creative Cookout Event, with sponsorship from Animation Ireland, Animation Skillnet and Screen Skills Ireland. Once again, the event was a huge success, with over 200 people from the animation industry in attendance. 

This year’s event also included the first of a new series of one-to-one speed meetings dubbed ‘Happy Hour Hustle’. Happy Hour Hustle is an opportunity for creatives to make new connections and its inaugural event was a hit! 


Once again, we have been overwhelmed by the generosity of the industry in supporting this event. Creative Cookout is an amazing opportunity to celebrate the hard-working creative crews for all their contributions to the Irish Animation industry, which continues to thrive on a global scale due to their talent and dedication. And it’s always such a joy to receive emails after the event from students and graduates who manage to find studio placements as a direct result of meeting people at the Cookout. It’s happened every year, and this year was no exception.” Lindsey Adams, of Daily Madness Productions and Chair of WIA, says. 

WIA’s next hosted event, ‘Creative Christmas’, will be taking place on November 29th so please do keep an eye on our Facebook page for more details.   facebook.com/wiaireland
