The Irish Street Arts, Circus and Spectacle Network (ISACS) will soon roll on up to Wexford when they establish their headquarters in the old County Hall on Spawell Road.

Following a meeting with the Board of ISACS and Wexford County Council, the artistic support and advocacy group were 'thrilled' to announce that they had receive a grant towards the establishment of the headquarters. This was granted by Wexford County Council under the Arts and Amenity grants scheme.

'This support is vital to us. It means so much to have a strong relationship with a local authority which respects and values the worth of artistic development for the people of this town and county. We can't thank them enough.' said Aidan Phelan, Chair of ISACS.

Led by ISACS Project Manager Lucy Medlycott, the group came from all across the country to meet with Wexford County Council.

ISACS currently has over 60 members from all over Ireland and Irish artists based abroad.
