Thank you the First Cut Youth Film Project for coming to the Big Blue Cube at CDYS Gouldshill, Mallow last week.
Twenty-one young people from the area got to write, direct, act, film and edit their own movies! Wow! Well done guys and we can't wait to see the final production at the Gala Screening and Celebrations at the Cork County Hall on November 28th.
Looking forward to two great short films from Mallow Young Filmmakers... That's a wrap!
Young people from CDYS, along with staff and volunteers, held a 12hr 'Electrofast' last Thursday. Everyone spent 12hrs together with no access to phones, tablets, laptops, electronic music or gaming devices. It was a sponsored event with all funds raised going to the ‘My Place’ project.
The day began at 11am at the CDYS office on Churchlane, with a day trip to Fota Wildlife Park and then back to the office for a pizza dinner. The rest of the evening was spent playing board games, group activities and our young musicians brought along their acoustic guitars for a sing song.
Well done to everyone who participated and good luck catching up on all those voicemails and texts! Although I heard one girl say she didn't even want her phone back! Maybe we should all do an electrofast every now and again...
This project is part supported by the Irish Government and the European Social Fund as part of the ESF Programme for Employability, Inclusion and Learning 2014-2020.
CDYS organises and is involved in many events and activities.
