Learn • Experience • Achieve • Prepare

Since 2017, the Irish Street Arts, Circus and Spectacle Network has developed its professional training programme for future arts leaders, managers, administrators, event coordinators, festival programmers, arts communications officers, academics,  and researchers, with many of our previous students subsequently entering those fields.

This programme provides a practical real-world experience of working in an arts organisation using the learning by doing approach. We provide on the job training, mentorship, networking, confidence building, career advice and encouragement, experience and a whole lot of fun.
