Karen community workshops

Artsquad Castlebar
13 July 2015


We've had a very interesting and productive 3 weeks working with members of the Karen Association Ireland. The Arts Workers have had a great time providing painting, pottery and music environments to share their knowledge and we have learned a great deal from the young people of the Karen community. The atmosphere has been fantastic and the music workshop culminated in the Karen Wrist tying event at the Tennis Club in Castlebar on 23 August 2015. The young people who took part are amazingly talented.

This cultural event celebrates the passing on of traditional information to the young people entering into adulthood. It was a fantastic ceremony and the food was amazing! We look forward to future workshops!
