Every year, at this time, we begin to get back to our schools and youth club work in earnest. There is always a couple of weeks when everyone is getting settled, and then BOOM! – it all kicks off.
It’s definitely that time right now, with no less than 17 workshops on the agenda for this week, and the possibility of a couple of other projects being added to the list, if we can fit them in.
As well as our regular schools, the big project at the moment is the preparation for a big Hallowe’en Parade and Party in Dublin’s North East Inner City. This area has had it rough over the last few months (arguably over the last 30 years), but it is a resilient and creative community, bursting with character and characters! We will be delivering workshops in three local areas over the next few weeks culminating in a very ambitious and diverse celebration on Hallowe’en Night itself.
We will be letting you all know more about this project as details emerge, but it’s looking really exciting!
