Two new 12 week Artskills Projects beginning in Limavady and Derry~Londonderry

Aspiring filmmakers, writers and musicians between the ages of 16 and 24 are being offered qualifications through the creative arts in two new Playhouse Artskills courses in Derry~Londonderry and Limavady.

Young people currently not in full time employment or training can gain OCN and CCEA nationally recognized qualifications in areas such as literacy through the arts during the twelve week courses, which both start next month.

The Limavady Artskills course starts at The Glens Community Association, Limavady on Tuesday September 16, and the course at The Playhouse Derry~Londonderry begins on Tuesday September 23.

Artskills, an award winning and innovative project, has also announced two Open and Information Days for anyone interested in hearing more about the new 12 week courses. The Open Day for the Limavady course will be held at Roe Valley Residents Association 13-14 Keady Way Limavady on Friday August 29 from 11am to 1pm, and the Open Day for The Playhouse course will be held on Thursday September 4 between 11am and 2.30pm.

Artskills is a three day per week course that offers participants the opportunity to engage in enjoyable, creative training that increases their skills set, enhances their confidence, and also affords them employer recognized qualifications.

Expenses related to travel to and from the project, lunch and £100 completers' bonus are all available - as is a weekly £25 EMA payment for those eligible.

"The Playhouse Artskills programme, in a mutually supportive and neutral environment ensures that all participants are given every chance to succeed - and that they are signposted towards additional training, job opportunities and pathways to further develop skills in areas such as Film & Video, Creative Writing, Digital Photography, Web Design as well as Literacy and even Songwriting" Liam Campbell Project Coordinator said.

For More Information or to register interest I either course, email or or phone The Playhouse on 028 7126 8027.

Alternatively you can register at either Open Days. The course is offered on a first come, first served basis and spaces fill up quickly.

This new Artskills project is announced after the project recently received the Claire's Award for Community Impact from the Department of Culture, Arts and Leisure.
