Creative Survival

  • Workshop

A creative reuse boot camp survival experience for ages 12–17 is taking place in ReCreate’s industrial warehouse.

Creative Survival is about encouraging young people to explore creative reuse as an alternative art form. Imagine Penney’s closed its doors forever or IKEA never existed. What then?

Step into camp – a place where young people are challenged to upcycle clothes, build sustainable outdoor spaces, knit blankets, design their own toys and even create accessories for family pets.

You will be set tasks and challenges throughout the day where you will experiment, build, tinker, combine, assemble, play and ultimately creatively survive.

Young people of South Dublin – are you up for a Bear Grylls kind of experience with a creative reuse twist? Then meet us at one of our designated Creative Survival bus stops, get on board and we’ll drop you off at Survival HQ.

We will host three groups at survival sessions during the day:



This is a free event but places are limited so booking is essential. Book now by contacting or 01 456 8798.

Young people and youth groups in the area will be invited.
