Arts Partners

In 2021, seven venues in Ireland came together with her to create the Network For Extraordinary Audiences to present a year-round programming of Anna’s shows for babies, early years and children with complex needs and to create an artist development programme to run alongside this.  In 2022, an 8th venue joined the Network.

Anna’s main co-producer is The Civic, Tallaght with whom she is one of their Associate Artists.

Anna’s primary funder is The Arts Council of Ireland and, as a Bray-based artist she also regularly receives funding from Wicklow Arts Office.

Non-Arts Partners

Key to Anna’s work is connecting up with non-arts organisations that live and work with and advocate for her audiences. These have included:

  • The national network of CYPSC (Children & Young People’s Services Committees) under the umbrella of TUSLA Its a Magical Journey – I AM BABA Implementation Evaluation
  • The Atlantic Philanthropy funded organisation, the Katharine Howard Foundation
  • Various branches of Enable Ireland
  • Special schools, respite homes and parents’ groups all over the country
  • To help with our COVID protocols, Clear Failte Mask has been our mask of choice – many thanks to them for providing masks to keep our smiles showing to our audiences!
