Kids’ Own partners on EU Local Partnership initiative

Kids’ Own is delighted to be partnering with Sligo Arts Service and The Model, Sligo on a pilot initiative, which is part of Ireland’s EU Presidency programme and funded by the Arts Council EU Local Partnership Scheme.

The Practice European Artists Network aims to develop a network of artists working with children and young people in Sligo, Tallinn and Budapest. Through this network, we will share and celebrate arts practice across Ireland, Estonia and Hungary and will research the needs of artists in terms of European connectivity and online supports.

The project will begin with a residential weekend, bringing all the artists together, and over the course of six months, a series of online events and local hub meetings will take place with artists connecting from across the three participating countries.

The project will culminate in regional showcase events in each country in June 2013, engaging the wider community and network.
