Waterford City & County Council Arts Service runs an extensive Arts In Education programme and has done so since the mid 1990’s.

Currently, this programme is run across the Primary and Secondary Schools network and within community contexts.

This provision from early years to young adulthood aims to expose young people to the arts and to provide high quality experiences across all art forms.

Working with partners in the community, education sector and specific arts organizations we offer a range of interventions. The young people also have a strong voice in this provision to shape various programmes and in some instances to be part of the organizing and decision making processes.

We have a long term relationship with Waterford Youth Arts, Lismore Castle Arts and Education Centres to assist with our programme. Currently we offer and/or assist with :

-Artist in Residence in Primary Schools and the TAP partnership
-Artifice – Transition Year Visual Arts Project with Lismore Castle Arts
-The LIT, Young Writers Festival, Waterford
-Waterford Music Generation
-Summer in the City Schools Engagement Programme
-Architect in Residence in Schools with the Waterford Festival of Architecture
-Traditional Music for teenagers in association with Comhlucht Forbartha na nDéise
