HOMESPUN - A D15 Young Voices Project

NOV 2017- FEB 2018

Wed 1 Nov - Wed 28 Feb 2018

We invite teachers from Primary and Secondary Schools in Dublin 15 to apply to be part of HOMESPUN, a spoken word, poetry and performance project, with award winning poet Colm Keegan and Visual Artist Micheal McLoughlin.

Over Autumn/Winter 2017 and Spring 2018, Colm Keegan will engage pupils in writing poetry about their place and their home, complementing Draíocht’s theatre project, ‘Home Theatre Ireland’. This is a project about encouraging, supporting and acknowledging the voice of our younger citizens. The project will culminate in a live performance and exhibition in Draíocht’s First Floor Gallery space in Spring 2018.

If you are interested in your school taking part in this project please contact sarah@draiocht.ie or on 01 8098029 for an application form by Friday 29nd September 2017.

The Muppets perform the classic Dickens holiday tale, with Kermit the Frog playing Bob Cratchit, the put-upon clerk of stingy Ebenezer Scrooge (Michael Caine). Other Muppets -- Miss Piggy, Gonzo, Fozzie Bear and Sam the Eagle - weave in and out of the story, while Scrooge receives visits from spirits of Christmases past, present and future showing him the error of his self-serving ways.
