Spring is in the air and it seems everyone wants to sing! Our Spring Sing Programme, packed with singing, beatboxing, composing and recording workshops has been a fantastic success, with only a few tickets left for Gitika Partington's Family Harmony workshop. This is the fourth consecutive programme to book out and just shows the hunger for children's culture.
We're very excited about our new literature programme, Telling Tall & Tiny Tales, curated by Pádraic Whyte, Assistant Professor of English and co-director of the Masters programme in Children's Literature at the School of English, Trinity College Dublin. This will be a new experience, where children can wander The Ark building, using a map to guide them to the different floors where there will be storytelling, floor puzzles, a book lounge, a display on how a book and illustrations are produced from start to finish and the opportunity to contribute towards a communal story.
There will be several workshops including a fantastic Detective Comic Book Workshop and the Special Event The Tale of the Titanic on the 14th April marks the centrenary of the sinking of the Titanic, with a special storytelling event exploring the myth and mystery surrouding the famous ship.
