In 2017 Galway Community Circus was awarded capital funding from the department of Arts, Heritage, Regional, Rural and Gaeltacht Affairs for the development of the current Circus Hall into a performance venue.
Galway Community Circus has outgrown the existing facility and is currently seeking a second venue to cater for the needs and growth of the Youth and Social Circus programme and the legacy of Wires Crossed. We are working with Galway City Council in a long-term capacity to find a permanent home for the Circus School-a dedicated space designed to maximise the potential of youth and social circus in Ireland- which we aim to realise by 2023.
Our Key Actions to realise this objective are…
- To secure funding to commission a feasibility study.
- Work with Galway City Council to explore the feasibility of a dedicated space in an existing, available venue in Galway City.
- Invest in the organisational capacity of Galway Community Circus
- Invest in the continuous upgrade of circus equipment and current facility
- Seek Capital Investment
