Creative Outreach at Saint Angela's Sligo, NUIG

Contact: Maria Gallo, Saint Angela's Sligo, NUIG

In 2009, students at St Angela's College, Sligo established the Creative Crew Club, a student society with a fun, creative and educational purpose to enhance skills and creativity. The Creative Crew's aim is to create a variety of textile art pieces to add colour, atmosphere and warmth to our learning environment and encourage the community surrounding the College, around Lough Gill and Sligo town to feel welcome, to visit and participate in their local higher education institution.
As a voluntary student-run club, with over twenty dedicated members, the Creative Crew arranged and offered workshops with the Foróige Youth Club in Sligo to enhance arts practice in the area of textile arts and craft creation.
