Inspireland are leading providers of secondary school poetry slam workshops and creative art summer camps in Ireland.
Every year we deliver creative writing and poetry slam workshops to over 6,000 students throughout Ireland. What we bring into classrooms and our summer camps is what builds the bridge between the creative spark and the incredible dream.
SCHOOL POETRY WORKSHOPS
Inspireland’s Poetry Slam Workshops are consistently the highlight of our schools’ in-school calendar. The buzz reverberates around the school. Staff rooms murmur of students that have never seemed so energized. Corridors buzz with excitement, there is clamour to get into the workshops again. Perceptions of poetry are flipped on their heads and the results are spectacular.
We encourage young people to find their creative voice, engage and use it by inviting them on a roller coaster ride into a headspace that is edgy, entertaining and profoundly inspirational. The work produced is breathtaking, addressing many SPHE issues such as wellness, identity, equality and bullying. Every month we feature students’ submissions in our Brave New Words blog.
Workshops are available September to mid-May for Junior Cycle and Transition Year students. Primary School workshops are available from the third week of May until the end of June.
SUMMER CAMPS 2019
Dublin and Limerick 2019
Inspireland Creative Arts Summer are Ireland’s most creative summer camps. Every week is completely different. From street art to graffiti to animation and wire sculpture, mask making, comic art; model making, set building and much, much more.
Kids Camp is for 9 to 12 year-olds and employs much of the same disciplines as teen week, but applies a more step-by-step approach. The ratio of staff to students is 7 to 1 and no one is left behind. These are as much about confidence building as they are about creating beautiful art.
