This event will be on Zoom and Facebook Live.

Aoibhie McCarthy, Artistic Director of Sample-Studios and Programme Manager of The Cork Creative Careers Programme will be joined in conversation with artist and tutor Kate McElroy to share their experience of The Cork Creative Careers pilot programme.

Established in 2021 The Cork Creative Careers Programme aimed to enable children and young people from Cork City's diverse urban communities to gain a better understanding of creative career paths through experiential workshops with arts professionals.

The pilot phase worked in collaboration with 200+ children in 7 of Cork City’s DEIS primary and secondary schools to engage directly with creatives in the classroom.
