Minister Madigan invites young people to Wilder Youth – an evening exploring Irish Youth and their creativity with Tara Stewart
The Creative Ireland Programme is hosting Wilder Youth at the Chocolate Factory 6pm, 22nd October 2019
The Minister for Culture, Heritage and the Gaeltacht, Josepha Madigan, TD, and the Creative Ireland Programme are inviting young people (14-21 year olds) to join 2FM DJ Tara Stewart when she hosts Wilder Youth, an event that celebrates the incredible energy of Ireland’s young creative practitioners. Wilder Youth will be held at the Chocolate Factory, Dublin 1 on 22nd October 2019. It is the first of a series of events that will be held around the country as part of the Creative Conversations programme.
Joining Tara will be breakout hip-hop duo, Tebi Rex, actor and writer Roxanna Nic Liam, podcaster Molly Parsons and Junk Kouture fashion designer Cian Newman.
As well as a live set from the hip-hop duo, Tebi Rex, Tara Stewart and the guests will talk about their own experiences of making work, their creative process, how they’ve been supported in their work in music, theatre and fashion and what more can be done to help other young people realise their potential. They’ll also discuss the mental health benefits of a creative life, the tension between hobby and career and the challenges of bringing creativity to life.
Commenting on the event Minister Madigan said: “The Creative Ireland Programme aims to improve the quality of all our lives by placing access to culture and creativity at the centre of our society. Our creative young people are so innovative and have so much to offer. We want to put a spotlight on their extraordinary talent and hear what moves them to make their art”.
