The Source '17
The Source '15
The Source Arts Centre Summer Camp is a weeklong summer project for 13 – 19 year olds interested in contemporary devised performance and design. Running since 2010 it has resulted in over 7 original performances and installations that have occupied the centres theatre, gallery, boardwalk and underground car park as well as interventions into Thurles itself.
I have worked with The SourceArts Centre in Thurles since July 2011 for their annual Summer Projects designing and facilitating young people’s designs for performance.
