Unleash your inner performer with Circus Explored today


Now that you’ve all gotten your hands on some of the 4,000 spinning plates that have been delivered across the island, are you ready to put your circus skills into practice today for Cruinniú na nÓg?

The Irish Street Arts, Circus & Spectacle (ISACS) Network have been busily preparing you all with their Circus Explored initiative, super online tutorials and fun workshops so that you can all unleash your inner circus performer! 

Circus Explored makes circus skills possible for everyone, no matter where you are from or who you are. A Shared Island initiative, it connects young people from both sides of the border with circus organisations and aims to forge links between youth circus organisations from all corners of the island through the ISACS Network.

Check out some of the fun that these circus wunderkinds had recently at the Festival of Fools circus and outdoor arts festival in Belfast:
