Funding awarded to Loft in Letterkenny

Letterkenny Youth and Family Service was one of ten projects around the country to be awarded funds as part of the Artist and Youth Work Residency Scheme 2016.

This grant will allow each of these groups to work with a professional artist and create pieces of art as diverse as a documentary, public art, a podcast or a play.

Workshop

Letterkenny Youth and Family Service will host documentary film making workshops for young people with learning/intellectual disabilities supporting the young people to make a documentary of their choosing with artist Paul Bonar.

This scheme is managed by the National Youth Council of Ireland (NYCI) and funded by the Arts Council and the Department of Children and Youth Affairs (DCYA).

It supports youth organisations to run an arts project with young people in their local communities.
