Teacher Artist Partnership BLAST
The Department of Education has developed a new innovative Arts-in-Education BLAST Residency Programme in 2021 which will enable up to 400 new Arts-in-Education Residencies in schools each year. This initiative aims to support the integration of the principles and key skills outlined in the Arts in Education Charter and the Creative Ireland Programme (2017-2022), Pillar 1 Creative Youth.
The aim of this scheme is to give pupils in schools all over the country the opportunity to work with a professional artist on unique projects to be originated and planned between the artist, the teacher and the school under the coordination of the Education Centre ESCI network of 21 full-time Education Centres.
