This year’s programme includes dance and architecture workshops, french film, and a music event hosted by Livefeed. TRIBES aim is to build self-esteem, critical imagination and self-expression among creative youths by providing a free programme of events for the local community. The festival is a platform for creative youth to perform, observe, learn and share.

TRIBES is also building a foundational Youth Arts Panel to develop a YPCE multidisciplinary approach for future festivals. Wanting to focus on a peer-led approach, & to become a festival for young people, centered around young people & devised by young people. Long term outcomes desired are to build a strong rapport amongst the Youth Arts Panel, & the local community, hoping to foster lifelong networks of the next generation of creatives. Being able to document the changing trajectory of what is available on a regular basis to young people in Galway, but also to be able to chart what is currently lacking.
