Jump Start!

Jump Start! in association with ISACS, the Irish Street Arts and Circus Network, Cairde Sligo Arts Festival and Irish Aerial Dance Festival

Earagail Arts Festival is extremely excited to announce a new multi-annual, artist development platform in partnership with ISACS, the Irish Street Arts and Circus Network, Cairde Sligo Arts Festival and Irish Aerial Dance Festival. This new national partnership will offer an artistic and sectoral mentoring programme for emerging artists via an open call residency – delivered by internationally recognized street arts, aerialists, circus and spectacle performers.

Jump Start! will create opportunities to develop the street arts, circus and spectacle artforms by encouraging established artists to nurture emerging artists and share their legacy, enrich and expand the artistic ambition and capacity of mid-career artists, grow and diversify audiences and deepen public engagement.

The focus for the inaugural year of the Jump Start project in 2021 will be to invite applications from aerial dance and circus artists wishing to develop their practice with specific performance and technical training via a series of residential periods with leading artform specialists, as well as research and development of proposed new work for potential presentation in the summer of 2022.

The project will offer a paid residency over 5 weeks of training in autumn/winter 2021/2022

  • 1 week at Acroaer, Sligo – October /November 2021
  • 3 weeks at IACC, Limerick – November / December 2021
  • 1 week at EAF / Donegal – January 2022

A bursary of 500 euro per each week of the residency in each location plus accommodation costs will be offered to the successful applicant.

Please note: Applicants must be either Irish born or Irish-based aerial artists and be current members of the ISACS network. The deadline for applications is 1pm on Thursday 12th August.
