Who are we?
Human beings are social creatures, It has been scientifically proven that we need each other to survive and thrive. To support the performing arts educators across Ireland, a newly formed collective of industry professionals, with recognised qualifications and experience, have created the Community Networking, Advocacy & Support Group now known as the Performing Arts Educators of Ireland (PAEI).
In Ireland alone, there are a large number of Performing Art schools, with high number of students attending these schools. We are currently in the process of collating precise data to further our understanding of these schools and use that understanding to better the support we offer.
