Youth Arts

Promoting quality youth arts practice in the youth work sector

We work with you to realise the potential of young people through good quality youth arts practice within youth work organisations and the non-formal educational sector, and to develop appropriate policies and activities at local, regional and national level. The NYCI Youth Arts Programme is a strategic partnership of The National Youth Council of Ireland, The Arts Council and The Department of Children and Youth Affairs.

Resources for young people who are staying at home

We have put together a short list of podcasts, film, photography, visual art, creative writing and reading resources and book recommendations for young people aged 12+ for young people who find themselves stuck indoors for the coming weeks.

Is this your year to get involved?

National Mapping of Youth Arts Provision
– Are You On The Map?

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.
