SPARK – Together: Inclusive Youth Arts Practice Webinar

February 19 @ 11:00 am - 12:30 pm GMT

The thematic focus of the SPARK Youth Arts Festival 2024 is the celebration and promotion of Inclusive youth arts practice.

You are invited to join NYCI’s Youth Arts Team along with inputs from a panel of guest speakers to explore inclusive practice in youth arts in Ireland

Join the conversation as we explore, critique, and consider how we can all take positive action to collaboratively work towards a more culturally inclusive youth arts community.

  • What is the motivation for a values-based approach to inclusive youth arts and what are the considerations in terms of how we resource and deliver our work?
  • Are the young people we are working with, the artists, our colleagues reflective of Irish diversity?
  • Do we have a deep understanding of Inclusive youth arts practice and who is holding us accountable for implementing a meaningful approach?
  • Is it about supporting diversity, or about supporting inclusivity: or what’s the difference?
  • For people just beginning on this journey, what resources and supports might be useful?

Come join the conversation!
