Creative Youth panels provide valuable insights to explore needs of young people

Over 300 people joined Creative Ireland for two online panel discussions on April 13th and 15th that explored creative projects experienced by young Irish people both in and out of the education system.

These two panel discussions featured contributions from a range of people involved in Creative Youth initiatives – such as the Creative Schools programme and the Local Creative Youth Partnerships – and provided an invaluable insight into the roll-out of the Creative Youth Plan to date.
