Welcome to Armagh Project 2014
Storytelling is one of the most fundamental of human activities, extending from Iron Age sages recounting the histories of their tribes to medieval bards recounting heroic tales to contemporary journalists reporting breaking news in modern Belfast. In Armagh, a city where ancient and modern Ireland converge, students will join in a rich tradition of study and storytelling as they explore the historical heartland of Ireland.
The Armagh Project allows students to explore Northern Ireland through the storytelling lens that suits them best: playwriting, creative writing, theatrical design or journalism. Students enroll in a specific residency where they learn and practice the professional skills in their chosen field while sharing with each other a contextual platform of excursions, readings, class activities and guest speakers.
