Springboard Seminar - Further education opportunities in Circus & Street Arts
Galway Community Circus in association with the Irish Street Arts, Circus & Spectacle Network would like to invite you to our Springboard Seminar; an information day on further training and education opportunities within circus & street arts. The goal of the event is to educate young people, parents and the wider community about the different possibilities open to people when considering these art forms as a career path. The day will include presentations from International and Irish speakers, panel discussion and a short performance. It will be a great opportunity to ask questions and gather information about the many exciting possibilities out there for our artists of tomorrow.
