The NUI Certificate in Youth Arts is the only of its kind in Ireland. It provides participants with an understanding of youth arts as well as offering a contextual and practice based approach to using the arts with young people. The course also provides the opportunity to experience various art forms used in working with young people .It is the first opportunity for many participants already working in the youth arts sector to certify their own experiential learning.
The NUI Certificate in Youth Arts introduces those working in the non formal youth and arts sectors to the concept, principles and practice of youth arts.
The course will be delivered at a number of venues in Dublin and will also involve site visits to relevant organisations and projects and a period of work experience at a relevant arts or youth organisation.
The Arts Council bursary award will cover :
The entire course fee 1000 euros (£679.00), a contribution of £243.00 to travel costs and £450.00 towards accommodation and subsistence.
Artists who live and work in Northern Ireland and are interested in availing of this opportunity should in the first instance contact the National Youth Arts Programme and follow the application process in place.
Please note the deadline for returning an application to the National Youth Arts Programme is Friday the 21 st September 2007.
