Inspireland are leading providers of secondary school poetry slam workshops and creative 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.
SUMMER CAMPS 2018 IN LIMERICK AND CLARE
Limerick School of Art & Design – Hotel Doolin
Inspireland Boutique Creative Arts Summer Camps bring together some of Ireland’s most talented artists to mentor and nurture the creativity of children and teens aged 10 to 16 in what is one of the most magical creative experiences of their lives.
No two days or weeks are ever the same and students will get the chance to learn the basics of creative writing, graphic novels and comic art, claymation, set building, derelict dolls’ houses, steampunk model making, craft bookmaking, mask making, puppetry, shadow theatre, street art stencils, graffiti and silent movies.
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.
