Children’s Council 2023 Taster Workshops 19 - 26 Aug 2023

Are you are a creative young person who loves drama, music, dance or art? If you are going into 4th or 5th Class in September then this could be right up your street!

The Ark Children’s Council is a dynamic and enriching year long experience for a group of children of 4th and 5th class age who have free access to attend all events at The Ark over the course of a year. Mentored and guided by The Ark Engagement and Participation Artist, Shaun Dunne, the children have the opportunity to become familiar with a range of artforms, to look behind the scenes, collaborate with The Ark staff, see and respond to work in development, and meet and work with visiting artists. They explore children’s rights through engagement with the arts while also amplifying the voice of the child within The Ark.

This August, we will be starting the recruitment process for The Children's Council 2023/24. These free taster workshops with Shaun Dunne are your chance to find out more and see what our council sessions are like.

The Children’s Council is free but spaces are limited and it does require commitment and consistent attendance to the program throughout the year.

To book a place on a taster workshop, just complete the booking form. Our box office team will be in touch to confirm your place.

You can find out more information about The Ark Children's Council here and the application process here.
