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
Bob Kelly and Una Ni Bhriain (pictured) are nearly as excited as we are to premiere our brand new theatre commision from Finegan Kruckemeyer, The Sleep that Ceased To Settle. Opening here at Graffiti in October for the young and young at heart, it then heads to the Baboro Internatrional Arts Festival for children later where you’ll have another chance to catch this gorgous story. Read all about it and get your tickets before some body else does!
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 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.
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.
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.
