isacs-international-work-spraoi-2018
Many thanks to Waterford Spraoi, Culture Ireland, the Arts Council of Ireland and Waterford County Council for their support in our international events at Spraoi Festival 2018. Thanks to their support we hosted a very well attended Street Talk focussing on Site Specific and Spectacle Productions in the Public Realm, on Sunday 5th August morning at Garter Lane Arts Centre.

We also brought eight international programmers to Spraoi, which strengthened our relationships with our European partners, planning for future collaborations and encouraging them to discover and meet Irish street and circus artists. During the three days of the festival, these programmers had the pleasure to visit the Spraoi studios, have one to one meetings with Irish artists and festival programmers and take part in our well attended international street talk.
