University ISACS, Jan 2014

Grant Goldie at Uni Limerick, Jan 14










ISACS in conjunction with the University of Limerick, held a wonderful Tower Seminar together on the 23rd January 2014. Fidget Feet Aerial Dance, Tumble Circus and Grant Goldie delivered a master class in aerial and circus skill techniques, to an enraptured group of over 30 individuals. Ulla Hokkanen from Galway Community Circus presented a session  on the benefits of Social Circus. Mick Mc Donnell described the process of initiating and managing a Creation Centre for Circus in Cork. Mike Leahy of Spraoi presented a wonderful talk about the importance of festivals in supporting Street Arts and Lucy Medlycott described the role of ISACS in advocating for the art form and how ISACS got started initially. Lots of food for thought.
