During the school year 2021– 2022, I had the opportunity to work together with schools through the (TAP) Teacher Artist Partnership program and the BLAST initiative (Bringing Live Arts to Students and Teachers):
“The aim of this scheme is to give students in schools all over the country the opportunity to work with a professional artist on unique projects to be planned and developed between the artist, the teacher, and the school under the coordination of the Education Support Centres Ireland ESCI network of 21 full-time education centers. This initiative supports children and young people for the future, where skills like the ability to connect and collaborate with others, engage in creative and critical thinking, and practice inclusivity at every level will be paramount to peace, stability, sustainable economic growth, and equality.
