Creative Youth Lab – Transition Year programme
Wexford Arts Centre is interested to engage with Transition Year youths with interest in creativity to brainstorm, create and curate/produce new types of creative programme of/by/for young people at Wexford Arts Centre as part of a new development programme supported by Wexford Local Development.
The Creative Youth lab will run from September to December 2021 at times best suited to the core group of Transition Year youths chosen to be part of this new initiative. The lab will be facilitated by Jeni Roddy, artist with experience in visual, performance, production and costume design and Peter Murphy, writer, spoken word, music, and performance/podcast artist.
Both artist facilitators will provide valuable expertise for guiding participating youths in the lab on transforming creative ideas into creative projects which may include visual art exhibitions/installations or performance events, podcast, or other mixed media projects for young audience engagement. Additional support will be provided by Wexford Arts Centre management team advising on budgeting/fundraising/marketing/technical production of creative projects.
This is a great opportunity for youths to lead on development of a new creative programme for young people in Wexford in association with Wexford Arts Centre.
We encourage and welcome applications from young people of all genders, nationalities, races, cultural backgrounds, ages, religions, languages, abilities, sexual orientations, and socio-economic statuses.
