This year, we were accompanied by a formidable Irish delegation of Irish festival promoters and programmers, as well as our usual delegation of artists and ISACS members, thanks to the support of Culture Ireland, Institute Ramon Llull (London) and FiraTárrega. For the first time, we also met with representatives of the Catalan government to talk about international collaborations, which is very good news for the future and has already led us into more international meetings and discussion since we came back!
Ireland's Irish Street Arts,
Our Irish delegation made many great connections and opened the discussions about local, European and international collaborations. We're particularly thankful to have a private meeting with representatives of Institut Ramon Llull and Catalan Arts facilitated by FiraTárrega. This followed by one of the must do's at FiraTárrega, the famous Catalan Lunch where professionals gather to network and meet Catalan artists.

We also discovered international artists you might see in Ireland in the upcoming years. Artists all had their special ways to involve the huge audiences, with thousands of attendees, into their shows. Every day, we went from
D-Construction - Cie Dyptik
Silence! - Les Commandos Percu
Breaking Point - Weibel Weibel Co
La Fem Fatal - Anton
Gracies per tot FiraTárrega, Institut Ramon Llull, Catalan Arts, Culture Ireland and Arts Council Ireland for your continual support in ISACS' work.
