In Kerry, in association with the Education Centre Tralee, St Joseph's NS, Fybough NS, Kiltallagh NS, St John's Parochial School, and LCA Youthreach Tralee are focusing on an exploration and performance of the creativity and talent developed by students during the Covid-19 lockdowns. Entitled “Creative Carnival”, they are exploring their inventiveness and individual creative flair in different areas of creativity, resulting in a diverse range of talents to showcase, particularly in areas that would not normally be given a performance space. This project will incentivise all styles of creativity by generating opportunities to share in a peer mentoring style. It is a multi-cultural, multi-denominational, cross-sector, cross-curricular initiative, giving broad scope for development of the learner’s decision-making and fostering their voice as the integral part of the devising process. Learners become leaders and ambassadors of their own brand. By the end of year one, it is intended that these brainstorming sessions will result in a video showcase, assessing the progress of the project, helping to guide and set targets for the process the following year, working towards a final performance in year two.
