The ISACS Network is delighted to bring back our HQ Hot Desk service to host ISACS Members Mish and her fantastic partner Stella, for one week this month.

This programme is aimed towards anyone who wants the space and facilities to carry out:

  • Research.
  • Project planning.
  • Funding and grant applications.

Here is what Mish says about her expectations for her week in our HQ in Wexford.

I’m looking forward to this week’s hot desking to sort my life out! As someone who is chronically allergic to admin I’m hoping that sharing an office with Lucy will force me to read some emails and get some sh*t done.

Having Lucy’s company is definitely making sitting in front of a computer a lot more enjoyable and one day in and she’s already giving lots of ideas and feedback. I’m hoping that this focused period will get a bunch of stuff started (and hopefully finished) such as making a PDF for Siolta Circus’s new show On Tish which we will tour next year.

I’ll also be making a new PDF for Snatch Circus with updated details for residency and touring needs. There will be a few zoom calls with the other half of Snatch Circus- Angelique, as we share ideas and figure out what direction we want to take with a new creation, and applying for funding and residencies that will support that. We really want to put more focus on progressing our skills and doing research and development towards new work next year. Funding applications hurt my brain so I’m hoping Lucy can give me moral (and practical) support and I can make some progress on them, meaning I can get back to the fun side of circus after next week.
