On the Road: Spraoi, Waterford
In association with ISACS Network, Spraoi Festival and Waterford City Council
How can creativity in Outdoor Arts best be supported? What practical and creative help do Outdoor Arts need to flourish? Where does inspiration and motivation come from?
OutdoorArtsUK and the Irish Street Arts, Circus and Spectacle Network will share some national and international examples of how to kick-start creativity, how to get work seen and support, encourage and nurture artists and producers. The Waterford Spraoi team will introduce the festival and explain some of its history, aims and future objectives.
So join us in this conversation designed to inform and inspire.
OutdoorArtsUK is back On the Road for 2019. The annual roadshow will be on tour throughout the summer bringing a series of Outdoor Arts networking events to festivals across the UK.
Each event will include a chance to learn more about the host festival, some information about the work of OutdoorArtsUK and a lively open space style discussion around a topical issue affecting the sector. We begin with short introductions, so you can expand your contact list and put a few faces to names, and its an opportunity to share information, news and ideas with fellow producers, programmers and artists.
We'll provide light refreshments in a friendly, informal atmosphere. Anyone with an interest in Outdoor Arts is welcome to come along and we encourage the host festival to invite their volunteers, local artists and practitioners and anyone they think might benefit from discovering more about the Outdoor Arts sector.
The timing is designed around the festival programme, trying to make it as inclusive as possible so that artists who are performing can come along, but please feel free to drop in and out of the event at any point.
