Young people from the John Bosco Youth Centre, Drimnagh have been working together to tell stories about their lives. Over the last 5 months they have talked about their school life, their hobbies, the places they love, the challenges they face and their hopes for the future. Together they have worked on a film project and a mini musical with Dave Kelly and Sam Kavanagh. Watch as they perform their musical ‘Michael and the Mango’ around a mango’s journey to be crowned the most delicious fruit by the President of Ireland.
(Y)our Story is part of The National Neighbourhood which in 2016/17 collaborated with communities in Ballyfermot, Drimnagh and South Circular Road and artists on a series of projects centred on the theme of storytelling. The projects relate to telling your story, then sharing and co-creating “our” story, supported and inspired by the collection and programmes at the National Concert Hall and Chester Beatty Library.
