What does it mean to be a child in 2016? This special event to launch and introduce The Ark’s new Children’s Council gives a platform to children to express their views and wishes for Ireland.

The children’s hopes and dreams for our nation’s future will be shared via soap box style performances using spoken word, stories, and poetry. Interspersing the Council’s performances will be music from celebrated children’s choir RTÉ Cór na nÓg. The choir will perform songs from their own extensive repertoire that complement the words of the Children’s Council.

Presented in partnership with St. Patrick’s Festival.

The Ark is supported by the Arts Council.

*Tickets available from Mon 7th March through The Ark’s box office.
