Project Year 1:

The project started in 2010 when staff from the National Museum and Larkin Community College met to explore potential ways of working together. 

 

'The partners were Larkin Community College, the National Museum of Ireland, Localise Youth and Community, Poetry Ireland and the Curriculum Development Unit. We spent a year planning this project before it happened.'

Máire O'Higgins, Teacher and Partnership Coordinator, Larkin Community College

 

'We looked at our common aims and our common aims were that we would work with young people in terms of engaging them and exciting them about the past. And using the creative arts to do that.

Lorraine Comer, Head of Education, National Museum of Ireland

 

Year one comprised of two distinct parts, these were a poetry workshop entitled Crime Scene Investigates and the Local Heroes Portraits Project and Exhibition.
