Community & Education

Druid's Community & Education programme aims to deepen engagement with professional theatre within education and local community settings.

This award-winning programme is focused on inclusion and access to the arts, community togetherness, and artistic and cultural expression.

The programme is made possible by the support and partnership of Galway company Aerogen and The Adrian Brinkerhoff Poetry Foundation.

During 2022 and 2023, the Community & Education programme will span all of Druid’s planned programming activities, renewing the engagement with communities and schools throughout Galway and the West, as well as on touring locations.

The programme will focus on encouraging creativity in schools through direct engagement and free educational resources, and increasing public engagement with the arts by making theatre more accessible.
