Call for young people to join EYE on the Edge


Galway 2020 is putting together a small group of young people who will support the development of an exciting new project happening this September called EYE on the Edge.

EYE on the Edge, presented in collaboration with the European Parliament will be a unique two-day festival created and curated by young people. Taking the format of the European Youth Event (EYE) which takes in Strasbourg every two years, the EYE on the Edge will fuse politics and culture to highlight and respond to contemporary European and global challenges through a mix of debates, workshops, artistic performances, and exhibitions.

Galway 2020, in partnership with local youth organisations are calling on interested young people to apply by 20 March to come together and guide the development of this project and help us put together an amazing two-day festival.
