Sharon O Brien, The Fairy and Fiddler

'I would definitely recommend other ISACS members to take part in the Delve programme at any stage. You are free to dive into art, find what you want. The ISACS team are so informative, supportive and welcoming. For an artist just starting it’s lovely to see how it all operates, for more developed artists it’s great not to be working at a festival and meet all these awesome people and watch all these amazing shows at your leisure. Shows are repeated a lot so it’s easy to navigate times to suit you. My only recommendation would be to have maybe just more participants. It was fab; share with as many as you can!'

Aine Kilgallon, Galway Community Circus

'What struck me again and again through the course of the weekend was the atmosphere, how happy everyone from the performers, organisers, audience and delegates were and how incredibly lucky we were to be here to experience all this culture. I would strongly recommend DELVE to others in the future as it gives you an insight and access to the performers, organisers and international delegates that you would not normally be exposed to. Affording you the opportunity to directly engage and network with them directly and discuss the work.'
