Mapping Youth Arts Provision in Youth Work Settings in Ireland
NYCI commissioned University College Cork to carry out this independent mapping of youth arts provision in youth work settings in Ireland. The research report outlines:
- What the nature and scope of youth arts provision in youth work settings in Ireland is currently.
- What challenges youth workers, youth arts practitioners and youth organisations encounter in providing opportunities for young people to engage in youth arts.
- What the key recommendations from the research are.
The analysis also highlights the urgent need for a shift at policy level and significant financial investment in order to advance meaningful and sustainable youth arts provision in Ireland.
