Inishowen Carnival create high quality street parades, sculptural installations and performances for public events.
Founded in 1996 we have created a new production annually for the St Patricks Festival Parade in Dublin ever since and perform at events throughout Ireland all year round.
We are a non profit making charity and limited company run by a voluntary board of directors. All performers are volunteers from communities across Inishowen and the North West of Ireland. Community workshops, costume and prop making are facilitated by a team of local artists who are paid on a freelance basis with funding from specific commissions and grants.
Key performance collaborators over many years include Aislingi Dance Academy (Ballybofey), Fusion Events/Dynamic Waves (Letterkenny), Carndonagh Community School, Zona Dance (Letterkenny) and In Your Space Circus (Derry).
We currently receive funding from Arts Council of Ireland Arts Grants to support creation of new work and from Donegal County Council for annual running costs and specific projects.
