The Dock is delighted to welcome Laura Mahon to the new position of Youth Arts Co-ordinator of The Response Project, a new youth orientated initiative based in the centre.
The project is funded by the PEACE III Programme through the European Union’s European Regional Development Fund managed for the Special EU Programmes Body by Leitrim County Council on behalf of County Leitrim Peace III Partnership.
The Response Project will involve the running of an arts hub for young people aged 15-18 years based in The Dock.
Participants will work with a range of arts practices including visual arts, theatre, music, film, literature, dance, design and multi-media technologies.
The project will enable young people to meet in an encouraging environment and foster creative self expression while exploring the concepts of identity, community, diversity and interculturalism.
The Response Project will launch this Saturday, March 9 from 2-4pm.
At the launch we will be providing a number of taster workshops in different art mediums for young people to ascertain the best content to include in the project as it develops over the course of 2013.
