Summer Stars online creative project for teenagers with CF

Are you a teenager with CF? Would you like to take part in a creative project with other young people? 

Teenagers aged 13 – 17 with Cystic Fibrosis are invited to take part in the Summer Stars online creative project led by Helium Arts in collaboration with Cystic Fibrosis Ireland.


Over 6 online sessions this autumn, connect creatively with other teenagers living with CF, experiment with digital tools, and create work based on your ideas and interests. 

The project is led by artist Eszter Némethi (pictured right) and supported by An Cosán Virtual Community College.

Here’s what teenagers from our spring workshops had to say:  

I thought it was really cool to meet other people with CF and have that connection. And I like how we’re sort of all in the same room at the same time.” 


I think it’s really fun and I like how we can all find different ways of being creative.


Join us on Saturdays in October & November from 11.30am-1pm 

12th, 19th October

2nd, 9th, 16th, 23rd November 


The project is free and no experience is necessary.
