Pop-up Poetry for Lil' Peeps

Pop-up Poetry for Lil' Peeps is an exciting new project which will see new and original poetry for early years audiences commissioned, performed, published and recorded in a series of podcasts.

Branar Téatar do Pháistí, in partnership Children's Books Ireland, Poetry Ireland will commission new, original nursery and nonsense rhymes by Irish writers for children aged 1-4. Branar in collaboration with the commissioned writers will create an intimate performance piece which could be performed in creches, childcare facilities, libraries and venues. 

The new poems/rhymes will feature multi-lingual, playful language with an emphasis on sound and rhythm ahead of sense. The final stage of this project will see the publication of an original collection of work for young children and a performance podcast of the work which can be used by parents/childcare providers and pre-school educators in the future.

This project is supported by Galway County, Galway City and Roscommon Creative Ireland Programmes.
