This will be our fifth edition of NEST and we invite you to come and see the NEST artists work in progress at Spraoi Festival from 2-4 August 2019.

What this years NEST artists hope for 

Through being part of NEST 2019 together with ISACS and in partnership with Spraoi, Waterford we aim to build stronger national and international network with other artists and producers. We hope to extend our knowledge of creating impactful outdoors shows through mentoring workshops and to improve our piece with information gained at the festival and in partnership with ISACS.

NEST is a fantastic opportunity as an artist to focus on, refine and develop work for street audiences. I am thrilled to be able to bring this show, Full Circle, to Waterford audiences through Spraoi Festival. The opportunity to work with the mentorship of the brilliant Joli Vyann is an exciting chance to grow through their direction and feedback to present authentic and striking work for the street audiences of Waterford. Thanks to ISACS and Spraoi for making this a reality.
