Creative Skills for Life

The Creative Skills For Life programme was created to enhance the participants’ inter-personal skills, such as communication and teamwork, using the arts as a tool for social development. It was designed to teach both arts skills and ITC skills, such as Photoshop, Word, the Internet as well as being a social network for young refugees and asylum seekers. The course aimed to encourage the participants to become the arts leaders and facilitators of the future by building up their confidence, motivation and aspiration.The programme culminated in a promenade performance entitled Postcards From Here in April 2006.

The ACE and Trinity College Arts Awards accredited the Creative Skills for Life programme.
