Youth Projects At The Source Arts Centre

Projects for Young People at The Source Arts Centre

Fracture Youth Theatre

Fracture Youth Theatre takes place from September to April each year. If you're between 13 and 17 years old and looking for something fun and exciting to be part of, Fracture Youth Theatre is it! We meet every Saturday, 3pm-5pm, in the Source Arts Centre, Thurles. Experienced theatre practitioners Emily Matthews and Joanne Quinn lead and direct the youth theatre.

NO experience necessary. Fracture YT is an excellent programme for young people to make new friends, develop communication skills and build confidence through theatre games and improvisation. Presenting two plays a year, participants work hard together to accomplish their goals in a supportive and rewarding environment.

Cost: €100 / Runs every Saturday 3pm to 5pm from September 11th 2021 – April 2022 (excluding Saturdays during school holidays)

For more information please contact The Source Arts Centre, Thurles, at 0504-90204.

Fracture Youth Theatre is a partnership project between The Source and Tipperary Arts Office with funding support from The Arts Council. 


Young Writers Hothouse 2020-

The Young Writers Hothouse is a series of workshop programme to support teenage writers.
The Hothouse looks to bring together those who are actively writing whether that is in private, a blog, school magazine or other format  - those who may be interested in having a career in writing in the future – to meet, write and share experiences with their peers.

5-10 writers aged between 15-18 years are offered places on the session which are be held at The Source Arts Centre. The workshops look at innovative and experimental ways of developing skills, that could be used and adapted by the writers when they leave the session. Writers are given writing tasks or challenges to take home and complete.

If you wish to be involved, please contact the Artistic Director, Brendan Maher via email:
