"Providing young people with a creative alternative to youth provision."
Dee Crooks
Project Manager

What we do

We deliver workshops to young people interested in the creative arts industry, for 8-25 year olds . We also support the young people to manage live events, create short films, documentary production, performing arts, singing academy, digital media, coding, DJ’ing, WebDesign and have fun but with a learning experience connected to everything they do. 

What will happen

When you come to NACN you can be sure that our staff and Volunteer Young Leaders will make you feel like part of the team. Each of our sessions offers something different and keeping with the creative side of things we like to change them about to suite the needs of the young people. 

Why We Use A Creative Approach

There is a growing body of evidence that supports the notion that active involvement in creative activities can provide a wide range of benefits, including the promotion of well-being, quality of life and health.

Rathcoole is the largest housing estate in Northern Ireland, with a population of approx 7,900, it is also a relatively deprived area that ranked within the top 10% most deprived areas in Northern Ireland. 

The pattern of declining health is linked with socio-economic status, and people living in disadvantaged areas are more likely to carry the burden of ill health.

At NACN Coole Studios we want to change this and our approach is to develop the capacity of young people living in and around the area to engage in innovative workshops and projects that will support them to pursue our vision to become self sustainable for the future.
