ISACS is thrilled to announce the third DELVE opportunity for 2023. We’ll be visiting the PITCH’D Circus and Street Arts Festival in Cork this time.

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 Helen Collins – Operations Manager of ISACS and experience the festival.

Who are we looking for?

  • 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 15th, 16th and 17th of September.

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).


15th, 16th and 17th of September.
