The Grainstore, dlr’s Youth arts facility, is seeking an experienced individual or company, with a passion for youth-centered arts practice, to facilitate the work of CANVAS, the Grainstore’s youth arts committee, in collaboration with the Grainstore Manager, CANVAS and other artists working on the programme. This is an exciting time for CANVAS as they develop a plan for continuity of their work and are closely involved with the current re-imagining and development of the youth arts programme at the Grainstore. They wish to develop a programme of activity relevant to their age and experience and engage in succession planning through establishing a feeder programme to mentor new members age 16 – 18 years to take over the future development of CANVAS.
The Grainstore, dlr’s Youth Arts Facility, is owned and managed by Dún Laoghaire – Rathdown County Council. The Grainstore is a Grade 1 listed building situated beside Cabinteely House. Thanks to the effort of parents living in the area, it was developed into a local youth arts centre and as it grew in success Dun Laoghaire-Rathdown County Council assumed responsibility for running the building; under their support it has continued to evolve and is now a vibrant, thriving hive of youth activities. The focus at the Grainstore is on arts and creative activities for children and young people.
Following a period of consultation, the Grainstore, dlr’s Youth Arts Facility, and CANVAS, the Grainstore’s youth arts committee, are entering a new phase of development of our youth arts programme. CANVAS are a youth arts committee based at the Grainstore, dlr’s Youth Arts Facility. Since August 2009 CANVAS have been exploring ways of developing creative projects for both themselves and their peers. They have organised gigs, exhibitions, film screenings and workshops. CANVAS is a voluntary committee of young people currently aged between 18 and 25 years.
