The Change-Maker Creative Fair travels around Ireland and offers a quick injection of inspiration for those who want to consider how they can support groups and learners to engage as active global citizens and change-makers. This Creative Fair is connecting to of UNESCO Learning City Conference, hosted in Cork, which will host up to 700 international and national delegates. We are inviting local participants to connect to this international event.

Our creative fairs give you a chance to:

  • Roll up your sleeves for a hands-on experience
  • Boost your confidence in your creativity.
  • Gather tools to connect your learners/ participants to global justice themes and their capacities as active global citizens. Leave with a tool-kit of inspirational activities and exercises

The activities at each fair vary but include stencil making, stop motion, chalkboard posters, creative writing, badge-making and inspirational reading corner.

Who is it for?

The programme targets change-makers, educators, activists, artists, community workers, adult educators, youth workers, volunteers and anyone who is interested how creative engagement can nurture global citizenship and empathic action around local and global justice themes.

About Creativity and Change

In the Creativity and Change programme we believe that creative engagement can support transformative learning experiences that connect the head, hand and heart and nurture competences of global citizens that are important for the sustainable future of our world, competences such as

·         empathy

·         resilience

·         critical thinking

·         problem solving

·         ability to take action

·         compassion


Our core programme is an CIT Level 9 Accredited Award that runs one weekend / month during the academic Year. We also offer Master classes and an annual Youth engagement Lab for practitioners

Our training opportunities bring creative methodologies and energy to Global Citizenship/ Development Education. The programme is based in CIT Crawford College of Art and Design, in the Department of Arts in Health and Community Practices and is supported by Irish Aid.
