Archie Evans

I’m Archie Evans, I’m 15 and I live in Wicklow.

One of my earliest creative memories is when my siblings and I used to gather stones and sticks to create dams in streams. It sounds simple but it was some of the best fun we had.

About 14 months ago I started circus club. I’m really pleased that my mum found out about it as it is definitely my favourite creative activity. We meet once a week and learn a variety of circus skills together, from stilt walking to trapeze to juggling. We’ve had a couple of away days for more intensive training, where we’ve got to meet circus teens from other parts of the country. I also enjoy, fencing, gaming and reading.

I think the best thing about Cruinniú na nÓg is that everyone gets a chance to try creative activities they would find very difficult to do otherwise. On the day itself I’ll be helping out with the Dublin Circus Club but I’ll also be trying out as many workshops as I can.

I think everyone should find a creative project that they enjoy. Once you have something you love doing it will never feel like work and you’re bound to get great at it.
