LiFT Youth Arts Festival that takes place around March/April each year. The week-long festival gives

young people aged 13-23 years an opportunity to showcase and experience the very best in youth

arts.

Taking place in axis, youth projects and other venues across Ballymun, the festival programme offers

7 days of free shows, workshops, exhibitions, master classes and longer lead in projects. We also deliver a Little LiFT programme for younger festival goers (10-12 years).

Here’s a taste of the kind of workshops LiFT programmes: circus/aerial silks, computer gaming,

documentary radio making, rap/song writing, meditation, ballroom dancing, fashion photography,

creative writing, silent film making, stilt-walking, parkour for beginners, studio recording sessions,

vocal training etc.

LiFT is brought to you by the Ballymun Festival Steering Committee, a multi-agency organisation

made up of representation from axis:Ballymun, Dublin City Council, Ballymun Regional Youth

Resource, Poppintree Youth Project, The Aisling Transition Project and the wider Ballymun

community.

2016 marks the 11th year of LiFT.
