Register now for free PEACE IV autumn arts programme

Wed, September 05, 2018

Are you aged between 14 to 16 and looking for a new and exciting experience this autumn?

Causeway Coast and Glens Borough Council in partnership with PEACE IV is offering free artistic workshops across the Borough in silver jewellery making, a Fab Lab 3D Art class and an opportunity to learn circus skills.

The workshops will take place in Flowerfield Arts Centre, Portstewart, Roe Valley Arts and Cultural Centre, Limavady, Ballymoney Town Hall and Ballycastle.

The Circus School will be taught by experienced tutors from the renowned Streetwise Community Circus. The silver jewellery workshop will be facilitated by silversmith Diane Lyness and each participant will make their own piece of silver jewellery to take home while the Fab Lab taught by Charlie Smyth will allow students to experiment with 3D design art.

The Mayor of Causeway Coast and Glens Borough Council Councillor Brenda Chivers said: “This is a fantastic opportunity for young people to learn new and creative skills in their free time or during their autumn half-term. Causeway Coast and Glens Borough Council is grateful to all funders for their vital support.”

Free lunch will be provided and workshops will run with sufficient numbers.

The Council is delivering the programme through its action plan as part of a €4.3m funding award from the European Union’s PEACE IV Programme, managed by the Special EU Programmes Body

The workshops are part of an ongoing programme which will continue until September 2019 alongside Peace IV designated schools throughout the Causeway Coast and Glens Borough Council area including Limavady, Coleraine, Ballycastle and Ballymoney.

Priority will be given to those who have not previously completed a Peace IV Arts programme.

The programme is open to pupils who attend Peace IV designated schools.          

Match-funding has been provided by the Executive Office in Northern Ireland and the Department of Rural and Community Development in Ireland.
