Artist Mentoring Programme in Kildare in partnership with Kildare County Council Arts Services, Barretstown and Helium

Kildare County Council Arts Service invites applications from artists across artforms with an interest in working with children to participate in a new Artist Mentoring Programme. Facilitated in partnership with Barretstown and Helium, this programme offers artists a unique opportunity to receive training, experience the recreational activity model, develop their facilitation skills and reflect on scope for potential project development.

Founded by Paul Newman, Barretstown is a specially-designed camp that provides Therapeutic Recreation programmes for children with serious illnesses, and their families. Activities include visual arts, drama, music and photography.

During this Mentoring Programme training will be provided by Helium, the arts and health organisation for children and Barretstown. Participating artists will also gain practical experience working alongside activity leaders to facilitate a programme on two weekends during Spring and Autumn 2012. On conclusion of the programme, artists will have opportunity to explore potential scope to develop further projects. Deadline for applications is: Wednesday the 8th of February 2012.

For further information and an application form please contact: Nicola Dunne, Email:nicoladunne@kwaras.ie or Tel: 086 3536928.
