Circus Explored is an initiative led by the Irish Street Arts, Circus and Spectacle Network (ISACS) in association with Creative Ireland and delivered for the first time in 2022, in partnership with Galway Community Circus, Dublin Circus Project, Cloughjordan Circus Club and Circus Factory, Cork.
Building on last year’s success, in 2023 we will partner with the same organisations and distribute 4,000 free spinning plates to every county in Ireland. Each set will also be accompanied by a postcard with a QR code linking to video tutorials for community members to learn how to spin a plate virtually with young circus practitioners from the partnering organisations.
On Saturday, 10 June, to celebrate Cruinniú na nÓg, circus worker Kate Mitchell will be on hand in Midleton Library to demonstrate how to use the spinning plates, which will be available free of charge on a first come, first served basis.
A Circus Explored Open Day will also take place at Circus Factory Cork, Cork City on June 10.
