This training provides participants with the skillset to develop a Youth Arts Policy within their organisation, contextualising it within the wider policy environment and focusing on building on existing work.

  • Participants will be able to distinguish the difference between policy and strategy.
  • Participants will explore potential areas a policy could cover in youth arts and be provided with sample templates.
  • Begin to plan how to approach the development of a policy including building allies.
  • Participants will gather information and contextualise their current work within the wider policy context.

Lunch 1.30pm

2.30pm -4pm: Discussion led by Maeve Mulrennan*
Maeve will give a presentation on Red Bird Youth Arts Collective, a youth-led visual arts collective based out of Galway Arts Centre. Beginning with the research and development phase 2008 – 2010, she will then look at the founding of the collective, facilitating young people in leadership roles, and working with young people on strategic planning. She will show documentation from a couple of their projects, including one funded by the NYCI.

*Maeve Mulrennan is a curator and writer based in Galway. She is the Head of Visual Art + Education in Galway Arts Centre.

We look forward to seeing you there.
