Make Your Mark Kerry
Kerry Local Creative Youth Partnership, in collaboration with Healthy Kerry, is undertaking a project which will feature the opinions of children and young people from three estates in Kerry. Young people from Rath Óraigh, Tralee; Benmore, Ballyduff and Caisleán Mór, Castleisland are being asked to share insights into their play and leisure activities at a local level.
The exhibition will feature the opinions of young people who are providing answers to two key questions, “when I am outside in my estate I like to…” and “when I am outside in my estate, I would like to…”. Young people are being asked to think about these questions and use their creativity to submit a Tik Tok, drawing, video, photograph, Instagram reel, rhyme or animation to firstname.lastname@example.org. Parental and caregiver permission is required.
The work will feature in an online exhibition offering insight into the lived experiences of children and young people who play and spend their leisure time outdoors in these areas. A website specially designed for the project www.makeyourmarkkerry.ie is live on www.kerryetb.ie and on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram via @kerrylcyp and @MakeYourMarkKerry. An experience for residents not to miss. If you are a resident of Rath Óraigh, Benmore or Caisleán Mór estate, visit www.makeyourmarkkerry.ie for further information and details.
As part of the Keep Well campaign, the three Make Your Mark Kerry creative facilitators are developing and uploading videos to Facebook to help inspire children and young people to be creative at home during their leisure time.
