Every young person deserves to reach their full creative potential

We support young people from birth to 18 years old to find their voice and develop their sense of value through our innovative and engaging arts programmes

Announcing New Baby Play Dates! 

As part of the Cork Lifelong Learning Festival 2024, we are excited to announce the first of our Graffiti:BEAG Parent & Baby play date series!


You’re in safe hands

Founded in 1984 by Emelie FitzGibbon, Graffiti has decades of experience providing safe, creative environments where young people can explore their potential with our trained and vetted facilitators. We offer so many opportunities for young people to engage in the arts that the selection can be overwhelming at first glance, but we are here to guide you. Whether you’re a parent, a teenager, a school or an organisation who deals with young people, talk to us about the possibilities we have to offer you.

Not sure where to start?

Let’s start a conversation—you don’t need to know what you want, or be ready to make a booking. We would love to simply chat with you so that together we can explore what programmes might work for you and your budget.

We believe in the power of the arts to help all young people, even those struggling to find their voice, to develop a sense of value and cultivate skills that are transferable to all areas of their lives.

We support any child or young person, from birth to 18 years old, as they engage with the arts. We open up opportunities for young people to be inspired, learn new skills, become part of a vibrant community, and realise their full creative potential.

Support Graffiti

Graffiti is a registered charity and we rely on funding and donations to connect with children and help them fulfil their creative potential.

We are supported and encouraged to express ourselves and to think outside the limits of our own creativity. The youth voice is at the centre of everything we do and I believe that is something extremely special and rare.


Young Person

No matter how busy she is and no matter what else is going on in her life Ellie will never miss a workshop. The inclusive manner in which the workshops are facilitated, and the outstanding quality of tuition, have been very helpful to her.



It is an inclusive workshop accessible to all abilities and perfectly addresses issues regarding diversity and multiculturalism within our school community and the wider community. I would highly recommend these workshops for schools wanting to explore diversity.
