Youth Work Ireland Laois are hosting a monthly Arts Platform which gives young people the opportunity to perform to a live audience with the support of a stage manager and sound technician and performance mentors, if required.


A voluntary committee have formed to organise a monthly Youth Arts event in Laois.

We recognise that there is a need for a place, time and space for young people to listen to and perform live music, or take part in a musical, dramatic, artistic performance or merely come along to watch and hang out with friends in a safe, youth friendly, alcohol free environment.
