Our Big Book of Sligo!

Kids’ Own is delighted to be working on a new book project entitled The Big Book of Sligo: A Children’s Panorama of County Sligo in 2020, commissioned by Sligo PPN, with additional funding from Creative Ireland Sligo.

The project aims to gather children’s stories about their experience of 2020, of the pandemic and public health restrictions. The project is also framed within a wider lens of health and wellbeing, focusing on the children’s local environment and sense of community. We want to bring children’s voices and their creative expressions to the wider community in County Sligo and ensure they are part of our future plans and visions as a community.

Children from Cloghogue National School, Castlebaldwin, Our Lady of Mercy Primary School, Sligo, and Sooey National School are participating in this project, as well as individual families from the Syrian community in County Sligo, with support from Sligo Family Resource Centre.

We can’t wait to publish their artwork and writing in the new year!
