Northside Youth Space to Light Up

The windows of the Northside Youth Space, Ballynanty, will light up with silhouettes this Friday evening, December 5th (6:30-7:30pm) as young people from Limerick Youth Service display the artwork.

The silhouettes are self-portraits that were created by young people with LYS’ Steps Youth Café as part of an exciting art project with artist Enda Griffin.

‘The young people had planned on hosting an art exhibition but unfortunately due to Covid-19 that is not possible at the moment,’ said Stacey Lyons, LYS.

‘Instead, the windows at the Northside Youth Space will have the silhouettes of the young people’s self-portraits lighting up Ballynanty in what should be a pretty cool sight,’ said Stacey.

‘The young people hope this display will give the public an opportunity to view their work from a safe distance and bring some much needed joy to people’s lives during this challenging times,’ added Stacey.

The art project was made possible through the National Youth Council of Ireland’s Artist in Residency programme.

Located in Ballynanty, LYS’ Northside Youth Space is home to a variety of youth work, further education and training opportunities for young people.

A member of Youth Work Ireland, LYS remains committed to connecting with young people and supporting them to reach their full potential.
