Summer School Large Banner

The Big Project 2016

June 8th- 11th | NUI Galway

Training for Youth Workers


Participants will work collectively over 3 days to create a street theatre event.


You can choose to work with street theatre and spectacle innovator Caoimhe Dunne to create and perform with large scale props, drum with renowned bodhrán player, percussionist Brian Fleming or engage in three days of song writing with community music practitioner Julie Tiernan. The workshops are designed to offer you very practical art form techniques and performance skills while also developing your confidence around the processes involved in high quality youth arts activity and ways to turn your big ideas into real-life creative projects!

How the training will work:
A theme will be brainstormed on day one of the training, a plan of action devised and the 3 programmes will work in tandem to create a large scale prop, song and music for the closing event. Participants on the training will learn about their chosen art form in addition to getting an insight on how to create and manage a large scale arts event.
