29 March – 1 April

Facilitated by:

in collaboration with the National Print Museum, Beggars Bush, Dublin 4.


Manifesto writing is a way to imagine different worlds.

“Creating the Manifesto” is a project for young people. Over four days during Easter 2016, participants will create their own manifestos. They will devise and write personal manifestos at the dlr LexIcon, Dun Laoghaire, and then use these texts to design and print letterpress posters at the National Print Museum, Beggars Bush, Dublin 4.

This is an active, practical and fun 4 day project incorporating creative writing, design and print, during which participants will also find out about historical manifestos, including the 1916 Proclamation.

The project is free.

*Participants must be available to attend each day of the project.
