Dates: 27 May to 21 June 2024

The National Museum of Ireland has launched an exciting new workshop programme for primary school audiences to learn about global citizenship in partnership with humanitarian aid agency GOAL.

Museum Changemakers invites fourth to sixth class students to discover prominent changemakers in Ireland’s past and explore the power of Museums to inspire activism and change for the future.

The workshops will introduce pupils to the United Nations 17 Sustainable Global Goals. Children will be challenged to think creatively about their own actions and how they can promote the Global Goals and become changemakers themselves.

These engaging workshops will be held in the new contemporary exhibition space we make our own historieslocated in the historic site of Collins Barracks in the heart of Dublin 7.

Children will have the opportunity to be inspired by the ‘Young Peoples Assembly’ which is featured in the we make our own histories exhibition space.

Bookings are now open for primary school teachers to empower the next generation and help shape future leaders of Ireland!

Workshop dates are available from 27 May to 21 June 2024. Places are offered free of charge to schools but booking is essential as places are limited.
