Lasta is an exciting arts programme curated by young people in eight Nasc Network venues across Ireland

In a new innovative approach to programming, twenty-one young curators have been engaged by the Nasc venues to programme a festival of work for children and young people from 11th to 20th June 2021, delivering for the first time, a national arts programme curated entirely by young people.

Under the guidance of theatre artists Maisie Lee and Fionn Foley, these young people will work collaboratively to deliver an ambitious programme of work for young people across the country.

Featuring multiple disciplines and reflecting the diversity of modern Ireland, this pioneering project offers a unique opportunity to develop our future arts programmers and producers.

An Grianán’s young curators are Ailis Cross Gorman and Fergal Lonergan. As well as programming events especially for An Grianán, they will collaborate with the other young curators to help programme events to be shared across the eight partner venues.

This promises to be a fresh, fun, diverse, accessible and exciting festival of events.

The NASC Network Venues are An Grianán (Letterkenny), Glór (Ennis), Siamsa Tíre (Tralee), The Pavilion (Dun Laoghaire), The Lime Tree (Limerick), Dunamaise (Port Laoise), Town Hall Theatre (Galway), Backstage (Longford).
