A shout out to young people between 14 and 21, with a creative streak, to join and speak up for their tribe!

Join host Tara Stewart (2FM) for an inspirational session of music and chat that celebrates and explores the incredible energy of Ireland’s creative young people. Featuring breakout hip-hop duo, Tebi Rex; actor and writer, Roxanna Nic Liam; podcaster, Molly Parsons and Junk Kouture fashion designer, Cian Newman.

The Creative Ireland Programme is delighted to present an evening of performance and talk focused on the brilliant emerging talent of young people in Ireland. As well as a live set from the amazing hip-hop duo, Tebi Rex; DJ and fashion guru, Tara Stewart will host a conversation with Max and Matt; Roxanna, Molly and Cian about their inspiration, their creative process, how they’ve been supported as young creatives in Ireland in music, theatre and fashion; and what more can be done to help others realise their potential. They’ll also talk about the mental health benefits of the creative life, the tension between hobby and career; and the challenges of bringing your creativity to life.

The Creative Ireland Programme is an all-of-Government initiative to place creativity at the centre of public policy. The core proposition is that participation in cultural activity drives personal and collective creativity, with significant implications for individual and societal wellbeing and achievement.
