About the Event: A collision of art and change!

 

This Creative Fair is facilitated by CIT CCAD’s Creativity and Change Programme and is run in collaboration with the Galway One World Centre, who will lead a morning workshop leading into the afternoon Creative Fair.

 

The Change-Maker Creative Fair travels around Ireland and offers a quick injection of inspiration for those who want to consider how they can support groups and learners to engage as active global citizens and change makers.

 

The morning workshop facilitated by Galway One World Centre will give you a chance to:

 

  • Engage in an interactive way with Global Justice issues
  • What are the Sustainable Development Goals? 
  • Provide you with an introduction to global justice issues, exploring themes like gender; refuge and migration;  debt, tax and trade justice; sustainability; and anti-racism perspectives.
  • Take away digital copies of all activities and materials used.

 

The creative fair will give you a chance to:

 

  • Roll up your sleeves for a hands-on experience
  • Boost your confidence in your creativity.
  • Gather tools to connect your learners/ participants to global justice themes and their capacities as active global citizens. Leave with a tool-kit of inspirational activities and exercises

 

 

The activities with include stencil making, stop motion, chalkboard posters, creative writing, badge-making and inspirational reading corner.

 

 

Who is it for?

 

The programme targets students, artists, change-makers, educators, activists, artists, community workers, adult educators, youth workers, volunteers and anyone who is interested how creative engagement can nurture global citizenship and empathic action around local and global justice themes.
