“It’s all about time.” With Grainne Rafferty and Kieran Gallagher

Droichead Arts Centre presents The Creative Garden Orchestra for Cruinniú na nÓg Louth 2021, a day of celebrating creativity for children and teenagers.

The creative Garden Orchestra is an engaging presentation where children aged 8 – 10 are invited to create the soundscape for a live story telling session.  All the sounds, atmospheric as well as rhythmical, are found in the world that surrounds them. Whether you have a garden or not, nature can be found throughout the home. From rustling branches and leaves to rippling water, from stomping wellies to zipping coats. From wooden tables to wooden spoons, it surrounds everyone.

With expert guidance from start to finish courtesy of renowned storyteller Grainne Rafferty and musician Kieran Gallagher the participants will compose and record their own mini masterpiece to treasure forever. Each session is 20 minutes in duration.

Cruinniú na nÓg is a flagship initiative of the Creative Ireland Programme’s Creative Youth plan to enable the creative potential of children and young people. The inaugural Cruinniú na nÓg took place on 23rd June 2018 with over 500 events taking place in cities, towns and villages across the country and is now in its 4th year.
