Take Back the Streets – Youth Street Art

The PEACE IV Youth Street Art project, Take Back the Streets will be delivered by In Your Space Circus, who will team up with Jump NI, UV Arts and Create Dance, IYSC to produce a project involving circus, parkour, street dance and graffiti art, culminating in a city-wide festival in July, celebrating our streets.

The festival aims to showcase our city’s young talent, whilst questioning and exploring the ideas of identity, belonging and borders, all relevant topics at this time of uncertainty over our own border.

Through the disciplines the young people will get a chance to build friendships, confidence and reclaim the public spaces of the city.

It is a completely free project, grounded in good relations themes, and with the North West’s young talent at its heart, open to residents of Derry-Londonderry, Donegal and Strabane districts. Participants do not need any prior experience, but need to come with an open mind and a willingness to get involved and push their comfort zone.

This exciting opportunity will span March – September 2019 with a number of workshops, a week-long academy at the start of July, and the Youth Street Art Festival which will showcase all the young people’s work alongside industry professionals.

The project is open to all young people aged 12-24, and in particular we are very keen to reach children and young people who, for whatever reason, don’t get a chance to take part in something like this.

Contact or call 028 7137 7113 for more information and to sign up to the programme.
