DELVE is a new GO-SEE initiative, launched in 2016, to support ISACS members to get out, see and learn about street, circus and performance arts happening all around Ireland. The programme involves going to various festivals, seeing and observing work from the street, circus and spectacle sectors, meeting the artists, the crew and discovering new ideas, inspiration and delving into these art forms with fresh eyes!

The aim of DELVE is to encourage dialogue and discussion around a variety of arts forms in Ireland, and to offer critical discussion and analysis and dynamic practices. Participants are encouraged to submit feedback from the events which can be read by clicking into each DELVE programme.
