A 12 month project offering young people an opportunity to engage in national and regional festivals: taking part in costume design, drumming and dance workshops and a residential weekend in Belfast with local young people.

The group paraded in fantastical, mythological costumes that lit up, accompanied by drummers and dancers: at “Making Light” in East Belfast & “Lighting the Legend” Salford.
