The Irish Society of Performance Designers is the representative body of scenographers in Ireland, a professional organisation run by designers for designers. The society celebrates, advocates, promotes, and supports scenographers at all stages of their careers by acting as an advocating entity, a national and international networking hub, and a showcasing and resource hub. ISPD fosters designers’ visibility as vital key players in the theatre and arts ecosystem, while championing diversity, inclusivity, accessibility, and sustainability.
