ISACS are taking part in the Circostrada General Meeting in Ljublijana (Slovenia)

Our CEO Lucy Medlycott is currently in Slovenia to attend Circostada Network [European Network for Circus and Street Arts], General Meeting from November 7th until November 9th 2017. The ISACS Network are looking forward to meeting over 55 European colleagues and friends over the next three days in Slovenia's capital, Ljublijana, at the General Meeting, which is being hosted by Ana Monro Theatre.


Ana Monro Theatre, as well as being Slovenia's oldest street theatre, also runs SUGLA, a street theatre school for young artists offering a two-year training program that helps them produce and emerge in the professional street arts environment. This programme first started on this day 10 years ago and to celebrate this achievement, Circostrada members will be guests of honour tonight at the academy. 
During the General Meeting, Circostrada members will be introduced to the subject 'Education and Training in Street Arts'. We will be given the opportunity to experience existing educational and training practices and to learn about their influence on the development of street theatre and circus and their social impact.

These three days will also be the moment to discuss the current and upcoming activities of the network's six work groups during joint sessions and to attend professional workshops with local experts. ISACS main focus at this meeting will be participating in a workgroup to prepare Fresh Street#3 which will be hosted in Galway in 2019 in partnership with Galway2020 and the National University of Ireland Galway.

Finally, we will have a chance to meet with members of the European Federation for Education and Training in Street Arts (EFETSA) as well as with representatives of Ljubljana's Department of Culture and Ljubljana's Tourism Board. 

This will be a great networking and educational opportunity that we are looking forward to sharing with our ISACS members when we arrive back in Ireland. Last but not least, members of the European Network will have a taste of the Slovenian culture while attending an exciting artistic programme featuring four unique shows: The Things We Carry (ŠUGLA Theatre), Ljubljana Stories (Ana Monro Theatre), Streetwalker (Group KUD Ljud) and CABARET (CirkoBalkana).
