Discovery Box
is a treasure trove of art related games and activities for parents and carers to use with young children in the gallery at WCAC. It is both social and educational and WCAC has commissioned guest artists to develop explorations for children and families to investigate and respond to exhibitions in the gallery using a variety of tools, art materials and information sheets. Activities take between 15 and 30 minutes. 

The Discovery Box will also be available for the public to use for the duration of Rita Duffy's exhibition which continues to Saturday 19 January.

Adopting a partnership approach West Cork Arts Centre has been developing an Early Childhood Arts programme since 2010, which draws on existing resources and programmes to engage with and learn more about working with very young children.

West Cork Arts Centre would like to acknowledge the generous support of project funders HSE, Cork Arts + Health Programme and West Cork VEC and recognise the support of partner organisations Graffiti Theatre Company’s BEAG Programme and County Childcare Committee.

Booking is with West Cork Arts Centre on 028 22090

WCAC opening hours are Mon – Sat, 10.00 AM – 5.00 PM.

West Cork Arts Centre will be closed from Sunday 23 December to Sunday 6 January inclusive.
