Adhering to Government advice & guidance concerning COVID-19, CDYSB continues to respond in numerous ways to support youth organisations during these exceptional times.
CDYSB supports the creative and artistic expression of young people who participate in youth projects/services and voluntary clubs/groups in the City of Dublin. This is facilitated by CDYSB sponsoring and supporting creative workshops, showcase events and artists’ engagement with young people and youth work practitioners.
CDYSB organises training courses and workshops for youth workers and volunteers to further their capacity to integrate creativity and art into youth work programmes and activities. CDYSB also works in strategic partnerships with other arts organisations (both statutory and voluntary) and independent artists so as to maximise the creative potential and development of young people in the City of Dublin.

With the present Covid restrictions in place CDYSB has been showcasing young people’s musical talents in the form of “Restricted Mics”, broadcasting on RTE2XM with video streaming to a range of social media, including our CDYSB Facebook page.
CDYSB has developed the “Metric Challenge Games” in response to safe social distancing needs and this is a programme CDYSB hopes to develop further in 2021 as conditions permit. Primarily based on balance, focus and coordination, the games are an excellent tool for communication, confidence and team building.
CDYSB has held a number of Youth art exhibitions in Dublin’s Civic Offices on Wood Quay, normally to coincide with the February midterm break. In these uncertain times, CDYSB now proposes to open up the exhibition to showcase young people’s broader creativity in photography, poetry and prose. This showcase will take place at a later, as yet undetermined date, in a physical space if restrictions allow, yet it may also take a digital or hardcopy format.

Now in its 7th year, the Visual Arts Development Programme (VADP) continues to be a staple for Projects & Clubs with an ambitious visual arts programme they would like to undertake, yet feel they need support with. CDYSB continues to support the REEL YOUTH collective, a filmmaking project managed by several youth projects/services throughout the city.
