Community Arts Initiative (Youth led and Bereavement linked)

This is a youth led initiative which is being supported by Ballymun Regional Youth Resource and Dublin City Council. This section of the project involves a number of creative art developmental workshops which has the joint aim of processing the loss of a friend and creating a design for a future monument/arts installation that will be a centre piece for the whole of Ballymun. Following the tragic death of their friend Josh, six young men have been supported to come together and they have formed a group which they have called, The Locksmiths. A developmental artist has been engaged and he is working with the young men (all aged 16/17) to support them to work through their loss while creating something beautiful. This will take place in stages. The young men hope that their design will be something that the entire Ballymun community will row in behind. There are plans to roll out a series of consultations with other local youth agencies to grow the project as it develops further.
