Community Engagement

The Future Creators programme commenced in September 2011 and is offered by the Digital Hub in collaboration with the NCAD Access Programme.  See here for information on this innovative community based digital programme. 

The Rialto Youth Project, located at the F2 Centre in Rialto have attended summer workshops in drawing and printmaking at the NCAD and during Easter 2012 the group participated in a Letterpress Workshop at NCAD followed by a six week printing project that will include a visit to the Blackchurch Print Studios in Temple Bar.  The particular Drawing Group who have engaged with the NCAD have been meeting once a week for the past two years and have demonstrated both a commitment to art and design as well as creative potential and NCAD Access is delighted to support this group in encouraging these young people from our community in their creative journey.

Participants from the RADE project participated in this years Access Day in a workshop that was facilitated by artists from the Art Links Limerick and children from the Computer Clubhouse in Dublin 8 are participating in an exciting art project with two third year Fine Art Painting students, Daniel Jackman and Laura Ni Fhlaibhinn that will take place over eight weeks concluding with a tour of the graduate show in June 2012.
