Youth Arts Advocacy Project Launched
Our 3 groups in this year’s youth arts advocacy and leadership group met on a rainy weekend in Wicklow in March and undertook training with a number of NYCI staff, Jillian Van Turnout (previous Taoiseach’s nominee to Seanad, Director of Children’s Rights Alliance and Chief Commissioner of the Irish Girl Guides) and Simon Devilly (previous producer of the Pat Kenny Show and media consultant). The groups are now finalising the projects to raise the profile of young people participating in the arts in their local areas. We are all looking forward to seeing the results!
NYCI Youth Arts Online Resources
Earlier in the year we convened a Youth Arts Online Resources Editorial Advisory Panel which has been helping us to identify ways of making our online resources more available to youth workers, volunteers and youth arts practitioners and to help us make sure we continue to generate content that is useful, practical and relevant. We have started implementing their feedback on youtharts.ie with a view to making a toolkit of resources (inspiration, workshops and case studies) more easily available to you so stay tuned!
