The Arts Council and ESRI have published a landmark study ‘Arts and Cultural Participation among Children and Young People

The Arts Council and ESRI have published a landmark study ‘Arts and Cultural Participation among Children and Young People – Insights from the Growing Up in Ireland study’. The research describes patterns of participation in arts and cultural activities among children, and examines a range of related child outcomes.

The research, conducted by Dr. Emer Smyth of the ESRI on behalf of the Arts Council, draws on Growing Up in Ireland (GUI) data to assess arts and cultural participation specifically among 3, 5, 9 and 13-year-olds. The research was commissioned as a first step in addressing the Arts Council’s commitment to plan and provide for children and young people, a key objective of our ten-year strategy, Making Great Art Work. The findings improve our knowledge and understanding of children’s participation in cultural life and the arts in Ireland, and highlight areas of relevance to a range of partners whose decisions, programmes, and policies impact on children’s experiences.

Growing Up in Ireland is an initiative of the Department of Children and Youth Affairs in association with the Department of Social Protection and the Central Statistics Office.
