This training held by Mayo Sligo Leitrim Local Creative Youth Partnership (LCYP) and supported by The Dock on September 20th, will support youth workers to gain practical and creative skills in street arts techniques when working with young people.
This practical, hands-on training aims to equip youth workers with new skills and facilitation methods to support their young people in using visual art for self-expression and advocacy.
Youth workers will develop their creative toolkit in digital and street arts, exploring techniques in stencilling, spray painting and online tools. Participants will be provided with inspiration on how these techniques can be used in a variety of settings, e.g., poster campaigns or upscaled, outdoor murals.
Street art is an engaging way for young people to gain confidence and self-determination. Through creating effective visual pieces, they become more connected to themselves and issues that affect them and develop their own individual voice. The artwork itself then goes on to inspire the audience young and old to take action and see the artists in a positive light.
