17th – 19th June 2020 Limavady, Northern Ireland.
Here at Stendhal Festival HQ we are very excited to announce year three of ArtAbyss Children’s Festival. ArtAbyss is a dedicated children’s arts festival and we can proudly say that ArtAbyss is the the only event of its kind in Northern Ireland.
Our aim with ArtAbyss is to bring together an event that will introduce children in the North West to facets of the arts which can inspire, educate and delight, which previously may have been difficult to gain access to due to location.
We believe passionately that the arts are fundamental in self-development (confidence, critical thinking, problem solving, expression & resilience) and provision of high quality professional arts experiences will enhance individuals and the community as a whole. With a strong focus on the world around us, ArtAbyss Children’s Festival not only engages young people in the arts but encourages children to understand how we can use the arts to make the world we live in a better place.
ArtAbyss Children’s Festival will take place on the 17th, 18th and 19th of June at Ballymully Cottage Farm, the home of Stendhal Festival. The day of events starts at 10am and finishes in time to get your pupils back to school for home time.
What’s the best part? Your pupils get to choose what activities they would like to get involved in before they arrive. Our activity programme will take place across 9 areas of our site, and all pupils will receive a unique timetable which will tell them the time and the area of the activities they have chosen. There will be 4 activities in total with a break for lunch. Activities range from dance, music, clowning, puppetry, campfire skills, special effects makeup, laughing yoga and much more!
ArtAbyss is open to key stage 2 pupils in the wider Limavady, Causeway Coast and Glens and County Derry, L’Derry regions.
Sounds great right?
