The Ark is a dedicated cultural centre for children that creates opportunities for children, along with their families and friends or with their school, to discover and love art.
Through their work with leading Irish and international artists, children can enjoy performances in their unique child-sized theatre, view engaging exhibitions or participate in creative workshops.
Welcoming audiences from the ages of 2-12, The Ark runs on a programme to programme basis so every visit is different.
Activities span across all areas of The Arts including but not limited to, Theatre, Music, Visual Art and Film.
While the majority of programming comes directly from The Ark, partnerships with many of the major cultural festivals contributes to the diversity of events offered.
Throughout the year you are bound to find a programme to match the tastes and interests of the young people in your lives.
For the very young, The Ark offers monthly Seedlings workshops for children from ages 2-4. These are led by an Artist in Residence whose expertise lies in arts and culture for early year’s audience. The art form explored changes with each Artist in Residence.
