The Creative Garden Orchestra

  • Workshop

“It’s all about time” – with Grainne Rafferty and Kieran Gallagher

Droichead Arts Centre presents The Creative Garden Orchestra for Cruinniú na nÓg Louth 2021, a day celebrating creativity for children and teenagers.

The Creative Garden Orchestra is an engaging presentation where children aged 8-10 are invited to create the soundscape for a live storytelling session.

All the sounds, atmospheric as well as rhythmical, are found in the world that surrounds them. Whether you have a garden or not, nature can be found throughout the home. From rustling branches and leaves to rippling water; stomping wellies to coat zippers; wooden tables to wooden spoons, it surrounds everyone!

With expert guidance from start to finish courtesy of renowned storyteller Grainne Rafferty and musician Kieran Gallagher, the participants will compose and record their own mini-masterpiece to treasure forever. 

Each session is live and 20 minutes in duration. No materials are needed.

Funded by Creative Ireland, with support from Droichead Arts Centre.
