The Arts in Education Portal editorial team over the last few months have been continuing to visit sites of the recipients of our Documentation Award.
Earlier this spring we visited the Young Playwrights Project, which is hosted at Graffiti Theatre Company in Cork and are one of the recipients of the Portal Documentation Award this year. Led by playwrights John McCarthy and Katie Holly the project is running between January and June 2018. Eight young playwrights have been selected and over a series of Saturday workshops, get the opportunity to work with professional writing mentors who are helping them to create 8 short plays that will be staged by professional actors and directors at the Cork Midsummer Festival.
They are developing their work in a fun and creative atmosphere, engaging with an innovative educational model in a non-formal educational setting.
The programme is being run by Fighting Words Cork at Graffiti Theatre Company . The performance of the plays will be part of the Cork Midsummer Festival and in association with Landmark Productions and The Everyman ‘s staging of Louise O’Neill’s award winning novel ‘Asking For It’.
