Call for Insurance Reform to Support Project Partner



Galway 2020 is concerned at the challenge facing the future of our Cultural Partner Galway Community Circus and the industry as a whole.


It is unfortunate that this organisation and the wider sector, which provides personal, creative and physical development for its members as well as spectacular entertainment for audiences, has become a victim of the ongoing insurance crisis in Ireland. As Galway, on behalf of Ireland, prepares to become European Capital of Culture in 2020, our aim is to showcase the very best of our culture, of which circus, street performance and sport plays a significant part in our year long programme. At a time when the eyes of the world turn towards Galway and Ireland, the future of companies and organisations producing amazing spectacles and ongoing community engagement programmes is at risk.


Galway 2020 will continue to work closely with Galway Community Circus and the wider sector to support the urgent call for the insurance reform needed to allow them to continue to do their amazing and important work”. said Patricia Philbin, CEO, Galway 2020 European Capital of Culture.
