Creating Magic, published by the National Youth Council of Ireland, 2013

This is the 2013 re-issue of the Creating Magic road-map published by the National Youth Council of Ireland.

This in practice success and due to the fact that “Youth arts practice has become more complex, more sophisticated, more youth-led“ have lead to its re-launch 10 years later. With the words of the authors:

“The document illustrates the many phases involved in moving from an original idea, on to exploring an art form, through to the final completion of a project or programme. This is not a linear planning process where one step follows another but rather an overlapping, flowing process where the project remains responsive and open to needs and local circumstances as they arise.“
