Welcome to the second Space Invaders early years arts festival. We're delighted to be able to share with you some wonderful memories from the event that cultivated creativity and well-being in all. For a short spell in May 2015 artists, children, families and educators invaded the beautiful grounds of Farmleigh to participate in the festival. This programme offered opportunities to engage with multiple art forms and highly skilled artists in various indoor and outdoor environments. This festival was particularly special as we included a Seminar for professionals working in the early years sector and those interested in early years arts education. To view the seminar presentations given by the artists, teachers and researchers from TCD please visit: vimeo.com/181648188 This dynamic collaborative are engaged in a unique longitudinal study of an early years music and visual arts programme, titled Artful Dodgers, in two community creche services in Fingal.
