Pop Up Poetry for Lil’ Peeps

  • Performance

Tales of teddies, moments of magic, comforting cuddles and worlds of wonder are celebrated in an exciting new collection of poems and nursery rhymes for young children.

Pop Up Poetry for lil’ Peeps is a new multi-platform project presented by Branar for children for all ages up to 6 years. Irish writers and artists Inni-k, Mary Murphy, Tadhg Mac Dhonnagáin and Liz Weir have created new poems and nursery rhymes in Irish and English for this unique project. Audiences can enjoy this work online through vivid audio recordings and new animations by artist Maeve Clancy.

Originally commissioned by the Galway County Council Creative Ireland Programme led by the Arts Office in partnership with Galway City Council and Roscommon County Council Creative Ireland programmes, in association with Children’s Books Ireland and Poetry Ireland.

Presented as part of the Criunniú na nÓg programme, Pop-Up Poetry for Lil Peeps will be available online from Saturday the 13th of June.
