Helium Arts collaborates with children and young people living with illness in community settings across the country, using filmmaking, music, artmaking, puppetry and more.


Our projects take place in partnership with patient support groups and cultural institutions, bringing opportunities for fun, friendship, self-expression and the development of creative skills to young participants.

‘Doing the project was really good because it made us feel normal, not sick kids having a little bit of fun. It felt like us teenagers are in control of what we want to come up with.’ – Participant on our Two Suitcases project in partnership with CanTeen Ireland, the national young people’s cancer support group
