The Right Here Right Now Rally 24 Feb 2023

The Children’s Rally will be the pinnacle moment of Right Here Right Now! The Ark's Festival of Children and we want YOU to join in!

It’s time to get on your soapbox and tell us what’s on your mind, making sure that children are seen and heard. There are two ways that school groups, children’s clubs or families can take part - either by joining us at The Ark or holding a rally where you are!

Either way, to help children get ready for the rally, we have created a Rally Activity Pack* that can be used in school or at home to explore the topic of children’s rights and the importance of children’s voices being heard by grown-ups.

Children from all over Ireland will rally together in Meeting House Square in Temple Bar (just behind The Ark). There’ll be speeches and banners, flags and songs! It will be a colourful celebration of children’s rights: the right to play, to engage in cultural activities and the right to express yourself.

If you, your family, group or school would like to take part, then call us on 01 670 7788 or use our online registration form and a member of The Ark team will be in touch. You can then request to receive the Rally Activity Pack.

*The Right Here Right Now! Rally Activity Pack will be available to download from early February and will be sent to you once you have registered.

Can't get to Dublin? Rally Where You Are!

If you can't make it to Meeting House Square, then you can still take part. Why not host your own local rally at home, in school or in your area to make sure that children get to tell everyone about what's important to them?
