Young Ensembles Scheme: showcase and networking event
Young people from ensembles awarded funding through the Arts Council’s Young Ensembles Scheme (YES) in 2010 participated in a showcase and networking event on the 5 March 2011. The Lewis Glucksman Gallery, which ran a project supported through the scheme, hosted and facilitated this event at the gallery in Cork, in partnership with the Arts Council.
The Arts Council places immense value on the young people and youth arts leaders who develop artistic work under the scheme and we were delighted with the high quality of the projects showcased on the day.
The Young Ensembles Scheme supports groups of young people to create ambitious and original work together in any artform. In 2010, 22 groups were awarded funding for initiatives in circus, dance, film, theatre, music and visual arts. The showcase included film screenings and live performances.
