If so, we’d love to hear from you!

Supported by the RTE Toy Show Appeal, Graffiti is delighted to offer 5 class groups the opportunity to take part in Raising Our Voices, a brand new Creative Learning Project that celebrates children’s  right to play and creativity, to access culture, and to have their voice heard. 

What’s involved in the project? 

  • Selected class groups and their teachers will attend a performance of Humans: A Robot Musical, at Graffiti on October 4th or 5th

  • 1 person from each class group will be offered a scholarship place to join Activate Youth Theatre, beginning September 2024 

Raising Our Voices is offered free of charge, but schools must provide their own transport to and from Graffiti if needed.
