Click

Click is a photography programme for young people and is part of our Youth Work Ireland Arts Programme. “Click” is based on the art of photography and aims to encourage young people to make sense of their world through visual representations. This year Click is part of our year of wellbeing and will feature at the National Consensus Conference in Dublin Castle

About
Click - Photos & Reflections of Youth Work & Wellbeing is a very simple activity that can be done collectively in a group or individually by a young person. It was launched as part of Youth Work Ireland Week 2016 and will run throughout the summer months. It will culminate in an exhibition display at our National Conference in Dublin Castle in October on a Wall of Wellbeing where all entries will be displayed. All you have to do is make a picture or take a photo which best demonstrates and speaks to the following statement….

“being part of a youth service supports my wellbeing”

Posters of Wellbeing
We are asking young people to make a poster which can be any size or shape, using any type of materials – arts, textiles, paint, and which can be done collectively in their youth group or individually. The poster must demonstrate and speak to the statement above. Each poster must be accompanied by a caption or short paragraph which describes the poster. The caption can be either included on the poster or written on the back and will be displayed on the Wall of Wellbeing at the National Conference 2016.

Portraits of Wellbeing
