Creative Voices: film, drama and writing workshops for teenagers living with chronic illness will take place in Dublin on 26 June and 29 June 2012. The workshops will be facilitated by artists Emma Eager and Ben Murnane, in association with Helium Children’s Arts & Health and the Digital Hub Development Agency. The workshops are aimed at teenagers aged 15 and older who are interested in exploring their creativity through filmmaking, acting, writing or art. If you cannot make it in person but would like to take part you can join us online via Skype to share your creative ideas.

Contact Emma Eager at for more information and to register. The workshops will use the same format for both days. Please specify which day suits you best.

If you enjoy the workshop day and you are keen to develop your filmmaking and animation skills, do some acting or turn your creative writing into a short movie, we aim to hold a film week in August. You can learn about our first film collaboration with teenagers living with chronic illness here.

Emma Eager has been funded by the Arts Council’s Artist in the Community Scheme managed by Create – the national development agency for collaborative arts, and is kindly supported by Children in Hospital Ireland.
