Young people aged 12-24 are invited to apply for the ACE Team to help create and deliver workshops across the MidCoast.

The ACE (Arts, Culture, Environment) Team is a group of local young people who are working with MidCoast Council to co-create workshops and events for young people in the region.

The Team are working on eight more events that will run from the end of January until mid-2023. Apply before 10 February to obtain experience in event coordination and gain skills in marketing and promotion and communication including social media and persuasive copywriting.

Current team members have said The ACE Team provides the opportunity to have a voice and create youth activities in the community that entertain, inform and educate MidCoast young people.

You could be a part of the creation and delivery of some great workshops. This is what the ACE team is currently working on:

A Taste of Circus with Circartus on Wednesday 25 January will introduce students to circus tricks and tools in a fun and safe space. Participants will learn juggling, hula hoop, diabolo, plate spinning, aerial, floor skills and more.

At Candle Making with Alison Dunne on Saturday 4 February, participants will learn to make their own natural candles in cool, upcycled containers.

Song Writing with Jake Davey on Wednesday 19 April is designed to teach the process that goes into writing music and lyrics. Students will learn about melody writing, song structure and more.
