Have your say

Local youth clubs, community, church and school groups have been invited to creatively have their say in a innovative youth art conference from November 2-4, organised by The Playhouse International Culture Arts Network (ICAN).

The young people will work with International and National artists to artistically respond to Northern Ireland’s segregated communities, education and legislation system.

During the My Say!! three-day free event at the Playhouse, young people aged 14 – 21 years of age will express their views and visions using a variety of media including theatre, poetry & rap, graffiti and street art.

Leading national and international artists will assist the participants to articulate their views artistically.

On the final morning the young participants will creatively share their experiences, concerns and solutions with key policy makers and cultural providers.

This conference is open to all youth, community and educational groups who meet the criteria which includes groups of four young people, accompanied by one adult. Additionally, the group may bring a local artist who they work with.

To book a group into the event it is essential to complete a short application form by contacting Elaine Forde ICAN Coordinator, Playhouse on: 71. 268027 or email:

Alternatively information and an application form can be downloaded from: and should be returned to Elaine Forde by October 26.
