Cruinniú na nÓg is a flagship initiative of the Creative Ireland Programme’s Creative Youth plan to enable the creative potential of children and young people. The event takes place this year on June 12th.
There will be a number of opportunities for young people to get involved in activities in advance of the day itself. Below you will find two online workshops for young people in County Wexford to participate in during the month of May.
The work created during these workshops will be featured on June 12th as part of the national day of celebration.
Cruinniú na nÓg PhotoVoice Project- REMOTE Workshop
R E M O T E is a PhotoVoice Project open to all 12-18 year olds based in Co. Wexford as part of this year’s Cruinniú na nÓg events. The project embraces the medium of photography to capture and express the inexpressible. Can an image give voice and communicate where words fail to do so? After all, a picture can be worth a thousand words. This project has been created in response to a unique period and its collective feeling of ‘remoteness’.
Take part in four online interactive workshops exploring photography, drama, self-expression and communication. Young people have the chance to respond, through the medium of photography, to given prompts week by week. The R E M O T E journey promises an immersive, illuminating experience using the tools of visual storytelling.
Places are limited and to register your child’s interest in this workshop please email: email@example.com
