Free Kildare workshop for arts, healthcare and early years' professionals on multi-sensory play for children

Riverbank Arts Centre

Helium Arts in partnership with Kildare County Council Arts Service is hosting this symposium and practical workshop for arts, healthcare and early years’ professionals interested in exploring multi-sensory, creative play through the arts for very young children with complex needs.

This event is informed by outcomes and learning from Helium Arts’ Pop Up Picnic, a multi-sensory performance project created in partnership with the Jack and Jill Children’s Foundation.

The workshops take place on Wednesday 30 May at Riverbank Arts Centre in Newbridge. This is a free event and includes lunch but registration is required as they’re limited places available on the workshop.

Engaging the Senses is produced by Helium Arts in partnership with Kildare County Council Arts Service. This symposium is funded by the Arts Council, Kildare County Council and Creative Ireland, and is supported by Riverbank Arts Centre.
