“Any kid from Dundonald with talent and ambition can make it big”

It’s as simple as that really. A major focus of the Dundonald Art Corridor project is to inspire, enable and provide a showcase and a springboard for our talented youngsters. The DAC project is connected into the local schools, focused on Art, Photography, Poetry and Tech. Each area has an annual award e.g. The Dundonald Young Poet of the Year where we find the best youngsters, showcase what they can do and try and help them on their first steps to a career.

We have also worked with local businesses to set up the Dundonald Business Group with the ambition of creating a pipeline from the schools into industry, connecting talented youngsters with local businesses for internships and hopefully future job creation and careers.

Real jobs for our kids. That’s the plan. If you’d like to be involved as a mentor, volunteer or to offer internships or work experience, please get in touch. Please also support our youngsters by turning up to their events, buying their paintings and telling them they’re amazing as often as you can!

A fantastic piece by Julia in ... P3!!
