Wild Words Children’s Book Festival - Calling all Artists!

Calling all Artists!

Wild Words Children’s Book Festival is currently looking to hear from writers and artists from all disciplines with extensive experience of working with children and young people that are interested in delivering either one-off readings or workshops based on books and literature with budgets starting at €200 to more long-term programmes lasting a number of consecutive days or regular visits over a number of weeks with budgets rising to €1,500.

Existing partner client groups include primary schools, pre-schools, youth groups and secondary schools. However we are also seeking to extend the range of groups we work with to include parent and toddler groups,  family support groups, youth arts groups and where possible, to develop new partnerships in other settings.

Planning for all activity between the festival, artist and group will occur from March to May with all contact hours happening within the month of June
