Wild Neighbourhood Festival
A mini-arts festival for young families to celebrate Cruinniú na nÓg. This festival explores creative ways to embrace nature in our city, highlighting the urban wildlife and habitat of DCU’s All Hallows campus in Drumcondra. Cruinniú na nÓg is Ireland's national day of free creativity for children and young people.
Wild Neighbourhood has engaged with artists and creatives to develop art workshops, performances, nature tours, games, storytelling and a school outreach project with Grace Park Educate Together NS. This festival places a spotlight on our local habitat including: the local animals, trees, plants and geography of the All Hallows campus grounds. Wild Neighbourhood is a collaboration between DCU and Grasshopper Events to celebrate Cruinniú na nÓg. Supported by Creative Ireland and Dublin City Council Arts Office.
