Arts Partners

In 2021, seven venues in Ireland came together with her to create the Network For Extraordinary Audiences to present a year’s worth of 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 programme.

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
  • 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 is our mask of choice – many thanks to them for providing masks to keep our smiles showing to our audiences!
