What is Quaranteen?

Around the world, many young people are experiencing feelings of isolation, anxiety, and fear. They’re also sharing a common medium to express those emotions: art.

We believe young people's imaginations are unparalleled which is why ISLAND Arts launched 'Quaranteen.' This youth arts project is for young people aged 13-19. It aims to document the views and opinions of local teenagers during the COVID19 pandemic, as well as sharing their talents with everything from music, comedy, dance and art as positive responses to the trials of living in lockdown.

Interested in becoming a part of this historic youth arts project?  Email Susannah McKenna at susannah.mckenna@lisburncastlereagh.gov.uk ot send us a direct message via ISLAND Arts' social media channels below.
