The Makings - Fostering Youth Art Creativity


Offaly County Council presents a pivotal Youth Arts Strategy written by Angela Ryan Whyte, joined by special guests, speakers and an array of talented youth.   This special celebration of youth creativity includes performances by Donlon Dance Company, Speed painter Shane Turner (both commissioned by the Offaly County Council Arts Office), and the Tullamore Screen Acting Company.

Donlon Dance Company’s chosen performance is an Urban Contemporary piece to a poem written by Camile Rainville ‘Be a Lady’, which explores conflicting messages women have been given about how they should look, eat and behave in the workplace and in relationships with men.  The choreography has been created to give the young women in the dance group a platform to express their feelings through the art of movement.

Revel in a mind-boggling display of creative skill and wonder as artist Shane Turner (South Africa’s Got Talent 2015, Ireland’s Got Talent 2019) reveals a surprise live painting performance of a locally inspiring personality that engages, perplexes, and enthrals audiences in an incredibly short time!

Tullamore Screen Acting Company will also provide a selection of scenes to view that are performed by young actors throughout the launch, followed by a brief explanation from the young people about their choices and how they approached the scene.
