NADFAS and Young People

NADFAS provides children and young people with exciting opportunities to get involved in creative arts activities. Our work with young people builds a lasting enthusiasm for the arts and an awareness of arts heritage and its conservation.

Young Arts opportunities are organised by individual Societies. Some Societies have on-going Young Arts Groups while others fund one-off Young Arts Projects.

Young Arts Groups
Young Arts Groups are Society based. Volunteers organise regular arts related activities for members aged 8-18. Young Arts Groups usually meet about once a month and a typical programme might include practical, creative workshops and gallery visits.

Young Arts Projects
NADFAS Societies conduct a wide range of Young Arts Projects ranging from running arts awards to funding artists in residence in primary schools.
