The Irish Aerial Creation Centre in Limerick , Ireland ( IACC), The Performing Arts Research Centre – Centre d’Investigacio Escenica (C.In.E) Sineu, Mallorca, Balearic Islands and the Irish Street Arts, Circus and Spectacle Network (ISACS) are working in partnership to offer an International residency exchange in 2018.

We are offering one 2-week residency at C.In.E, Majorca, to an Irish based or Irish born circus artist/s, group of individuals or company (max 6).

C.In.E will offer free use of the space and free accommodation in a house at the village (up to 6 people in double rooms). IACC will offer a total grant of €1,200 towards the overall costs of the residency. ISACS will offer mentorship and support in any application writing to source other funds towards this residency.

In 2019 IACC will reciprocate with a 2-week residency for Balearic Islands based circus artists, group of individuals or company.

C.In.E is part of a network called Island Connect – this is a very new organisation and IACC is interested to become a member of this network, with the result that these residencies form a part of this programme, exchanging between Irish and Balearic organisations, festivals and companies.
