ISACS is thrilled to announce the third DELVE opportunity for 2024. We’ll be visiting once more the PITCH’D Circus and Street Arts Festival in Cork.

DELVE: Discover, Explore, Learn, Visualise and Engage – aims to support artists to experience and be inspired by art through various festivals and programmes throughout Ireland. We go, we see, we watch, we listen, we learn, we connect with art and art makers, and we get inspired.

At PITCH’D, four ISACS artists are invited to join ISACS and experience the festival.

Who are we looking for?

  • 2 emerging circus artists based outside of Cork.
  • 2 Cork-based established circus artists.

You must be a current member of ISACS, and you must be able to attend and be in Cork City on the 23rd, 24th and 25th of August.

All show tickets, and meals will be paid for (for those based outside of Cork also travel, and accommodation costs will be covered by ISACS).


23rd, 24th and 25th of August.
