Creative Connections, a 2-day professional development programme in the area of arts, health & early years was held at the end of March, with a very exciting line-up of speakers and artists from around Europe contributing.

Artists’ workshops were presented by Kate Wilson (Visual Artist, Ireland), Hannah Lefeuvre (Community Dance Artist, UK), Anna Rosenfelder (Children´s Theatre Artist, Facilitator, Germany) and Ger Relph (Musician, Ireland).
