Street workshops

Street Art workshops are being offered to young people across the Moyle area over the summer months.

Taster sessions in this modern urban art form will be taught by Belfast-based company Re-Ink–Our-Nation and are funded by Moyle Community Safety Partnership and Moyle District Council.

Workshops will take place across the Moyle District at local venues. The sessions are open to anyone aged 12 -18 and participants will learn different techniques, including responsible street art, and have the opportunity to create a piece of art for their local community centre or venue.
