Artworks created by children who participated in our recent Spring Programme will go on display in a series of exhibitions across Ireland this summer. Each exhibition will showcase collaborations between our professional artists and young participants.

This is a brilliant opportunity for anyone with an interest in Helium Arts to come along to the Family Gathering Days, meet the team, have fun and see what our amazing Helium Arts participants have created with our artists and how they did it.

Three exhibitions will take place over June and July – in Cork, Limerick and Galway. Details below:

“The impact Helium Arts has had on my child’s life has been immeasurable. Art and creativity have brought positivity into Tiernan’s life during times when he was really struggling with his healthcare issues. Tiernan is now so excited to know that some of his artworks will be exhibited by Helium this summer. It is providing him with a real boost during what has been a particularly challenging period.”
