New film project

We are delighted to have been awarded National Youth Council of Ireland funding from the Artist in Youth Work Residency Scheme for Canvas, the Grainstore’s Youth Arts Committee to work with film artist John Conway on a pilot project which will be taking place from October to December 2017.

Visual artist John Conway worked with young people from Crosscare Youth Development Ballybrack to produce a series of fun, exciting, magical and at times, frightening, short films.

The group have been learning the processes and skills involved in film production and collaboratively devising, directing, filming and acting in their own productions.The films were screened in the Studio Theatre, dlr LexIcon, on Friday 16 June, where the young film-makers took part in a Q&A with the audience.
