The ISACS Network is a knowledge hub for those wishing to deepen their understanding of Street Arts, Circus, and Spectacle art forms in Ireland.

In recent years, through the support of the County Wexford Arts Department, we have cultivated and grown a distinguished ISACS library—a repository of knowledge comprising a diverse and enriching collection of books.

This resource is accessible to researchers, artists, and individuals eager to explore the complexities of our art forms and their transformative power.
