Events are free, local and activity-based. It’s a day for ‘doing’, ‘making’ ‘celebrating’ and ‘creating’!
This year we are looking to present work across all art-forms through activities, performances, developmental workshops or creative projects for/by young people aged 0-18. These activities will take place across Dublin City neighbourhoods. They can happen in community centres, public spaces and parks, schools, libraries, and venues. These events can be one off to happen on the 13th June or be project based with the final outcome demonstrated on the 13th June. In exceptional cases activities involving schools may be considered for June 12th.  Activities are inclusive of all art forms and creative forms including but not limited to visual art, music, dance, drama, storytelling, puppetry, circus, street art, performance, coding, design, readings, poetry, architecture, etc. We are looking for innovative activities that foster creativity, encourage collaboration and engage a diverse audience.
