This 3-day residential summer school will support you to develop skills in visual arts and spoken word, while delving into the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). The NYCI will show you how artivism can provoke curiosity and engage critical thinking skills, using a pathway that takes you from the personal to the local, the national, and the global. This event will support participants to explore art as a means for social change and facilitate engagement in a form of creative expression that can inspire awareness, action and change making behaviour.

What to expect?

The immersive summer school experience provides space for participants to benefit from a supportive environment where they can explore their own creativity and artivism, reflect on global youth work as a critical youth work practice, and share experiences with peers. Expect lots of practical, creative activities; visual arts and spoken word workshops led by artists; group experiences and discussions!

Join NYCI’s Youth Arts Programme and Global Youth Work Programme (Youth 2030) and a multi-disciplinary team of artists and artivists for an exciting summer school to enhance your work with young people!

The NYCI Youth Arts Summer School 2023 is funded by Irish Aid, The Arts Council and The Department for Children, Equality, Disability, Integration and Youth.
