About the conference
This two day conference sees NUI Galway Drama and Theatre Studies partnering with Galway Community Circus (GCC) and the Irish Street Arts, Circus and Spectacle Network (ISACS) to explore the application of circus practice in education at all levels to promote creativity, inclusion and social change. This conference, the first of its kind in Ireland, will take place at the O’Donoghue Centre for Drama, Theatre and Performance. The programme will include keynote speakers, roundtables, practical workshops and an evening reception with live performances, including the Galway Community Circus Youth Ensemble show to celebrate their 20th anniversary year. The conference will also launch the results of the Erasmus + funded Circus ++ project which saw the development of a European BA in Youth and Social Circus Pedagogy which NUI Galway and GCC partnered on from 2019-2022.
