About the Project
Developed as a South Dublin County Council Libraries & Arts project, South Dublin Epic utilises speculative fiction, local history and geography, and the lived experience of participants to encourage self-expression and increase confidence in artist ability.
Using four specially designed maps, each drawing on a diverse range of influences, including zombie horror, political intrigue, apocalyptic and speculative fiction, participants are asked to take ownership of their stories, and collaboratively write themselves into these exciting and imaginative environments. Immediate and often cataclysmic challenges encourage participants to take the reins of their own story and figure their way out.
Utilising world and character building, with a focus on imaginative and collaborative problem solving, solutions to inworld dilemmas are only as limited as the imaginations of participants. Run with young writers from schools and youth organisations across South Dublin county, Dublin South Epic encourages a new generation of artists to think outside the box and illustrate their capabilities to lead.
The Epic Workshop is also available as a stand alone workshop for schools, so get in touch if you’d like to talk about booking it.
