Artform fields: those either working or interested in working in the artforms of circus, multi-disciplinary arts, participatory arts, site-specific work, spectacle and street arts.
Open to: producers, administrators, managers, project and event managers at all stages of their careers. People just starting out with an interest in this type of work and artforms are also very welcome. We strongly encourage and welcome people from all diverse backgrounds and sections of society to participate in this survey.
Over the last year, some of us in the street arts and circus sector have been discussing the area of producer support, both the need for more supports for producers themselves and in the context of supporting artists to find suitably experienced and knowledgeable producers. With this in mind, we are proposing to map the producer field in Ireland in relation to the above artform and context areas through a short survey. We also want to test the appetite for the creation of a possible Producer’s Network.
Please do also share this short survey with anyone you know who might be interested. On social media please follow and tag Promenade Ireland on both Facebook and Instagram.
