The Douglas Hyde delighted to present our 2nd TY Festival to coincide with Cruinniú na nÓg 2023. It’s a day-long programme for transition year students and home-educated students from across the country (15-18 years) to learn, play and explore their creativity through art-making labs. Designed and developed by Transition Year Students from The Douglas Hyde’s TY Project 2022, The Douglas Hyde will offer two art-making labs that will explore themes of Memory, Identity and Selfhood through Animation and Sound respectively.
Half of the places will be allocated to DEIS Schools and an online resource with directions will be made available for everyone to explore animation, music and sound in their own time either individually or at school in the classroom setting. A travel fund would be made available for those participants that require financial assistance. The outcome of the workshops will be two collaboratives featuring everyone’s artwork which will be launched and presented at The Douglas Hyde in September 2023.
Daranijoh Sunni | Sonic Lab
In this lab, participants will experience sound in its different forms and reflect on the emotional responses that sound provokes. Daranijoh Sunni (E the Artist) will create and isolate different sounds and vibrations for participants to experience – and then ask them to think about and discuss the feelings, emotions, and responses they have to these sonic elements reflecting on themes like identity, selfhood, community or culture.
