European Contemporary Circus Conference in Lithuania
Lucy Medlycott attended on our behalf and delivered a talk on the arrival of Contemporary Circus in Ireland and how we interface with mainland Europe.
This included a reflection on our place and geography as an island nation, our economy as a small independent state and our current political and societal situation...all aspects which directly influence the state of the arts and the role of arts within our communities and for our audiences.
Along side Mara Pavula- Latvia, Terje Bernardt - Estonia and Mantas Markevi?ius -Lithuania; ISACS shared their commonalities, situations and challenges facing the development and growth of Contemporary Circus in these independent regions.
We look forward to further strengthening our ties and our links as we endeavour to develop these art forms across territories.
