Cruinniú na nÓg - celebrating creativity in young people
Saturday 11th June 2022
Join us for a free day of youthful creativity all around Leitrim on the 11th of June! An initiative of Creative Ireland, Cruinniú na nÓg recognises the crucial importance of culture and creativity in the lives of all children and young people, and aims to provide access to and encourage children and young people’s participation in ‘making’, ‘doing’ and ‘creating’! This year Leitrim is bursting with more events than ever before that you can try out, in person! All the ingredients you will need for a fun filled day of creativity.
A huge variety of amazing events ranging from the Exploration Dome in Mohill, Food, Feasting and Live Music in Manorhamilton and a Ukulele workshop in Ballinamore with Music Generation. Printmaking in Leitrim Design House, Taster Youth theatre workshops in Carrigallen, Make a Dragonfly in Carrick-on-Shannon or spend the day with Airc Damsha Culture Club in Drumshanbo.
These are just some of the exciting free activities taking place in Leitrim, as well as the many national events you can take part in too. Try your hand at Poetry in Mohill, take part in a Eco Youth Art Camp in Rossinver, join Solar powered makers with Fab Lab. It is just jam-packed this year with exhibitions of work created by young people, Fairy Tea Parties, Dreamcatcher workshops, make you own Bug Hotel, Film-making and so much more.
