The Irish Street Arts, Circus and Spectacle Network (ISACS) is an all-island artist-led resource organisation and membership network which supports and grows these collective art forms. ISACS celebrates, advocates, encourages and invests in the future development of the artists that work within these art forms. This we do through training, mentoring, resources, networking and more.
Circus Explored is a project led by the Irish Street Arts, Circus and Spectacle Network in association with Creative Ireland and in partnership with Galway Community Circus, Dublin Circus Project, Cloughjordan Circus Club and Circus Factory, Cork, In Your Space Circus Derry and Circusful Belfast.
Last year, ISACS connected with every single Creative Ireland Coordinator and Head Librarian in each local authority in Ireland, engaging them directly in the distribution of 5,000 juggling sets to their communities. Youth-led video tutorials were created to share various elements of juggling techniques and skills. Open days were held in each of the four partners’ spaces for Cruinniú na nÓg, 11th June 2022.
