Castlebar youth organisation receives arts funding

Comhairle Shóisearach Mhaigh Eo based in Newtown, Castlebar, has been awarded €5,000 under the Artist in Youth Work Scheme run by the National Youth Council of Ireland’s Youth Arts programme to script and edit a documentary on local politics and how young people can have a voice in matters which affect them at a local and national level.

The Artist in Youth Work Residency Award funds collaborative arts projects between professional artists and groups of young people at a local and regional level, while the aim of the Youth Arts Development Award is to encourage the introduction of youth arts into an organisation’s programme of work and allow an organisation assess its sustainability.
