The event is organised by the Irish Street Art, Circus and Spectacle Network and Waterford Spraoi who will be co-hosting the third edition of Circostrada’s DIVE, which is an in-depth training and networking activity exploring the role of outdoor arts in shaping our society. This third edition of the programme will be the first time it is hosted in Ireland.

Full programme can be found here.

About the Artist

Ashton is a multidisciplinary queer and neurodivergent artist, working in movement, theatre and circus. Ashton’s creative practice has taken them in all manner of unexpected directions, now working across multiple art-forms, creating pieces which explore authentic communication and connection, and working to combine text with physical expression.

Culture Connects

British Council Ireland are supporting DIVE this year under British Council’s Culture Connects programme, as it connects Northern Irish cultural professionals such as Ashton to a wider network of professionals to allow them to broker new connections, share knowledge, and develop their craft.
