Peace IV


Peace IV

Dundalk Youth Centre work with Louth Peace IV Partnership to deliver a number of significant projects under the EU Peace IV Programme. The programme is administered by the SEUPB.

This work will focus on providing young people with training and networking opportunities to learn more about themselves and their wider communities to help promote Peace and Reconciliation on the Island.

Anticlockwise Project

Anticlockwise is a large scale youth arts and Peace Building Project.

The project will recruit, train and support 360 young people over two years. The key activity in this project is the delivery of 24 high quality arts programmes to create significant arts, drama and musical performances.

The theme of the project will be the ancient texts and stories of the Ulster Cycle which will provide a context for a shared appreciation of culture and heritage through the arts.

The training programme is the fundamental element of the project that builds a strong learning group, introduces key learning topics such as Conflict, Racism and Discrimination and gives opportunities for young people to refer this learning to their lives as young people growing up in County Louth and Armagh.

Peace Arts Project

The Peace Arts Programme team will recruit, train and support a group of 220 young people over two years. This training will be aimed at developing young people’s skills, knowledge and attitudes towards Peace Building with a special emphasis on addressing racism and discrimination.

The young people will engage in a series of training, study visits and arts programmes to develop their skills, knowledge and attitudes.

Civic Leadership Project

The Civic Leadership Project will be delivered through Louth Comhairle na nÓg. This training will be aimed at developing young people’s skills, knowledge and attitudes towards Peace Building with a special emphasis on addressing racism and discrimination.

Through a programme of training, study visits both in Ireland and Europe and local events the participants will connect issues to their local community and develop greater levels of knowledge and understanding.

Youth Council Cross Border Project

Dundalk Youth Centre will develop a non-formal education programme to deliver the aims of the Cross-Border Youth Council Networking Project. Working in an out of school setting the programme team will recruit, train and support a group of 36 young people from the six youth councils in each of two years. This training will be aimed at developing young people’s skills, knowledge and attitudes towards Peace Building with a special emphasis on addressing racism and discrimination.

This project will partner with Youth Councils in Louth, Cavan, Monaghan, Newry and Mourne, Down, Armagh and Banbridge and Craigavon.
