Youth Arts Advocacy Project for Young People

Youth Arts Advocacy Project for Young People

Friday, 5 October 2018, 11.55pm

Using NYCI’s advocacy expertise across a range of issues affecting young people for many years, and the experience of successfully hosting the National Youth Arts Showcase, The National Youth Council of Ireland invites applications from 3-4 young people plus 2 leaders, to take part in youth arts advocacy training.

This training will take place over 2 days in Dublin over mid-term break 2018. It includes a number of expert inputs on

  • how decisions in Ireland are made,
  • communications and working with the media,
  • working with elected representatives and
  • using your voice to promote your message.

There will also be opportunities for young people to continue to work with NYCI on other advocacy events. For example, past participants will present their experiences of being part of arts projects to a Joint Oireachtas Committee later this year, have met with relevant ministers and presented their work in Dublin Castle and Queen’s University, Belfast. Previous participants produced a film and a social media campaign, attended a Hackathon at Twitter HQ and an event for young people at Aras an Uachtarain.

As well as meeting experts in their field and exploring youth leadership and advocacy, participants have told us they very much enjoyed the residential and social element of meeting and making friends with young people from other youth arts projects around the country.
