In the afternoon, from 3pm there will be a an open-mic where young people are invited to read their own creative writing in front of an audience.
Finally, from 4pm until 6pm there will be film screenings. First up will be a selection of films made by young people which have been submitted to the Galway Arts Centre, followed up by a screening of Captain Morten and the Spider Queen. This was the first ever feature film to be animated in stop-motion in Ireland. After the screening there will be a short talk about the process of making this film.
