The Artist and Youth Work Residency

We have received funding for The Artist and Youth Work Residency from NYCI, (National Youth Council of Ireland).  Local artist Alice Dixon will work with a group of young people from Lacken Foroige who have worked here at Ballinglen on creative projects together for a number of years to create a Street Spectacle piece entitled ‘Who am I? Where do we go from here?' They will explore identity and life after lockdown through the creative process that encourages a positive engagement in their surrounding area and in turn to create a sense of empowerment, pride, confidence and inclusion.
