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.

Getting Involved

All our volunteers who work with young people must be members of NADFAS - either as Society Members or Affiliate Members. There are NADFAS Societies all over the country, many involved with Young Arts or Church Trails.
