Breaking the Rules! Youth Arts Summer School for Youth Workers
A very busy few months here in the Arts Programme culminated in our Youth Arts Summer School for Youth Workers in Cork at the beginning of June this year. The residential summer school saw almost 50 participants take part in art form workshops across digital filmmaking, visual art, drama and street art as well as exciting evening events and a showcase celebration of all the hard work that had been undertaken.
All participants arrived in Cork with a huge amount of commitment and enthusiasm for the three days and so much fantastic work was created, not to mention new networks and links for youth workers across Ireland and a few lifelong friendships too!
One of our participants tweeted about his experience on returning-RHCPip said “#BreakingTheRules was absolutely amazing. One of the best times I've ever had. Wonderful people, ideas and experiences. Thanks nyci”. So a very successful few days for all involved, with 100% of those who evaluated the experience wanting to attend next year’s summer school-and 100% who would reccommend the summer school to staff and colleagues-the planning is already underway for 2012!
We will be uploading images and participant’s experiences and feedback to our website shortly, so keep an eye out to see what it was all about and to get some inspiration for attending next year’s event!
