The Ark

The Ark introduces children to the wonder and creativity of the arts playing a vital role in raising the standard of culture for children.

The Ark was founded on the principle that children, as citizens, have the same cultural rights as adults. The Ark strives to ensure that all children in Ireland have access to high quality cultural experiences, here children aged 2 to 12 explore theatre, music, literature, painting, film and dance. They discover what it means to be an artist from respected professional artists. It is a great way to nurture young imaginations inspiring a lifelong journey through culture.
