ISACS attended the recent All Ireland Performing Arts Conference in conjunction with Theatre Forum, at Limerick in June 2014.

This conference is a must for all artists, venue managers, festival programmers, policy makers, advocacy groups, activists and believers in all performing art forms. This years conference was both inspiring, challenging and at times, downright overwhelming!

What was particularly interesting to note was that a number of the speakers spoke about their work beyond traditional art venues, hubs and spaces. The interest and the awareness growing around the area of extending our performance spaces and breaking with tradition, is fast becoming de rigueur!! But of course we already know that!!
