The National Youth Arts Programme is delighted to announce that we have engaged University College Cork to undertake a National Mapping of Youth Arts Provision. This will provide data and evidence on young people’s engagement with the arts in youth work settings across the country. This is an important opportunity to contribute the work of your organisation to a national picture. Alongside the research, an online map of practice will be developed, to showcase the work of your organisation.
A census week will take place 27th January – 2nd February 2020, during which time you will receive a link to the research from us and see it promoted across our social media channels – don’t miss this chance to have your work represented.
Arming you with the tools and information to make the case for more of the great work you are already carrying out
Your participation will help create an accurate picture of youth arts practice in youth work settings, increase recognition of arts in youth work and support policy recommendations to make it sustainable. All participants will be entered into a draw for a number of mini grants to be used by the organisation to engage an artist on a small project or buy a piece of equipment. A conference to launch the research, curated by young people and spotlighting their contribution to youth arts policy in Ireland will be held in late April.
