This year’s programme features Walking Man, an exciting performance designed especially for children by Graffiti Theatre Company; the launch of the Storytelling Chair a schools project with craftsperson Alison Ospina at Skibbereen Library; Discovery Box, an adventurous gallery resource for parents and carers to use with young children in the gallery created by artist Sarah Ruttle; an array of workshops including constellation installation, fantasy paper sculpture and creative characters, visual art and dance exploration.

There will also be an exhibition of artwork created by children during WCAC’s Art Club and central to the Choowawaa! Children’s Art Event programme is an exhibition, Points of View, which features work created by children in primary schools from across West Cork in response to the exhibition Free-Fall by Amy Walsh. The schools worked with artists Alison Cronin and Tess Leak to develop projects exploring movement, landscape and alternative viewpoints, using animation, sculpture, and print.
