Some good news, Super Paua fans! For those of you who have been watching on since 2014 and the Aunty Ben days, or since 2016 and the 16 & Rising days, you may have noticed that Super Paua has been quite inactive in the last few years. This is largely because Sian's been away (galavanting all over New Zealand, mainly - you can read all about it in her personal wesite at www.siannimhuiri.blog) but also because the structure and aims of the organisation have been evolving, as has our membership.
The good news is that we're planning both a RE-LAUNCH in late 2019 and an AMBITIOUS PROGRAMME for the year 2020, involving community projects, shows for young people, a show for general audiences and a series of Targeted Artist Development activities.
We're really lucky to have received some substantial funding from Arts Council Ireland to develop and deliver this programme, which we will tell you more about in the future.
For now, we'd love to say a HUGE THANK YOU, to the Arts Council, and particularly the YPCE section and Seona Ni Bhriain, to our amazing partners for The Lonsdale Project (Baboro, Dr Brian Murray from TUD, Scifest, Dr Claire Murray (no relation!) from Diamond Light Source, UCL, The Royal Institution and the Lonsdale family!) and for Te Rohi (Exchnage House Ireland, Dublin Fringe Festival, Te Pou, Te Rehia, and Creative New Zealand).
