Set the Stage Outdoors: Inspiring Creativity, Captivating Audiences, Unleashing Artistry in the Open Air!

Series of 5 outdoor arts events in Laois, Roscommon, Cork City, Kerry and Tipperary, launched to promote Planning for Outdoor Performances (POP) across Ireland.

To help inspire and encourage more outdoor performances, a series of five arts events will take place across the country from February to May in Laois, Roscommon, Cork City, Kerry and Tipperary. This is part of the Planning for Outdoor Performances (POP) initiative, which has been developed by local authority arts offices (spearheaded by Roscommon County Council) to help encourage the outdoor arts scene.  It promotes collaboration and helps artists, event planners, local festivals and community organisers bring captivating outdoor performances to cities and towns across the country.

Over the past few months, those interested in volunteering or learning about outdoor events had the opportunity to part-take in training seminars on how to successfully run outdoor performances, which had high levels of engagement. These covered everything from the history of outdoor arts, to developing your artistic vision and partnerships, the practicalities and logistics of running outdoor arts events, and reaching different kinds of audiences, plus making your event more artist, audience and environmentally friendly.

The POP Events Series, which has just been launched, aims to further promote the initiative and show what can be achieved when groups work together locally. The outdoor events are all arts based and free for the public to attend.

The Planning for Outdoor Performance (POP) is a partnership initiative and events series with 5 Local Authority Arts Offices (including Roscommon – lead partner, Cork City, Kerry, Laois and Tipperary) with National Resource Organisations: Irish Street Arts, Circus & Spectacle Network (ISACS), Poetry Ireland, Music Network and Theatre Forum. Management services provided by Promenade, who help artists and communities to create incredible new arts experiences in Ireland’s public places and unusual spaces.
