Children’s Council 2021 Online Taster Workshops 13 - 14 Aug 2021

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 exploring active citizenship through engagement with the arts as well as amplifying the voice of the child within The Ark, making sure that your voices are included in our decision making.

This August, we will be starting the recruitment process for The Children's Council 2021/22. This is your chance to find out more and get a taste of what our council sessions are like with these free online workshops.

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

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.
