EPIC Explorers: Easter Imagination Camp

This event has ended

Online, Tuesday 30th March - Thursday 8th April

Escape your house this Easter and explore the world alongside the Irish diaspora with our EPIC Explorers Imagination Camp! Delivered via Zoom, this camp is suitable for ages 6 – 12 years old, but designed so that the whole family can take part! Join EPIC live from 10.30-11.30 each day, then spend the day enjoying the activities you have learned and don’t forget to share your images with us.

Led by an experienced facilitator, families will explore a different theme related to explorers each day, discovering the history of the Irish diaspora through intriguing stories and fun facts, before using their imagination to complete a series of fun and creative ‘at-home’ activities.

Designed to get kids engaging with their environment afresh, we’ll explore the Antarctic with Ernest Shackleton, journey through space with Neil Armstrong and follow Nellie Bly as she travels around the world in 72 days.

Kids will be encouraged to use their creativity and ingenuity to complete tasks by using materials and objects they can find at home.

March 30th and April 6th: Female Explorers

Travel the world with activities inspired by the adventures of wildlife experts like Liz Bonnin and explorers like Elizabeth La Blond and explorer Nelly Bly.

March 31st and April 7th : Polar Explorers

Grab your jacket, hat and scarf for this chilly workshop where we explore the polar regions, based on the exploits of Antarctic explorers Ernest Shackleton and Tom Crean.

March 1st and April 8th: Space Explorers

The Irish have travelled everywhere, but what would an Irish colony be like in space? Follow in the moonwalk of Irish space experts like Neil Armstrong and Norah Pattern to experience life on another planet.

Important: This camp will be delivered remotely via Zoom. Please do not journey to EPIC The Irish Emigration Museum for this camp. As this camp is delivered remotely, EPIC The Irish Emigration Museum is not responsible for supervising children during the course of this camp. Parents and guardians are advised that children will be asked to complete a number of tasks using their imagination, home environment and materials available to them, so require adult supervision at all times, and should wear old clothes and be prepared to get messy!

The One Dublin One Book choice for 2021 is Leonard and Hungry Paul by Rónán Hession. Leonard and Hungry Paul are two quiet friends who see the world differently. They use humour, board games and silence to steer their way through the maelstrom that is the 21st century. ‘The figure in Munch’s painting isn’t actually screaming!’ Hungry Paul said. ‘Really, are you sure?’ replied Le

The Visiting Hour

Online

“You used to swing me on our garden gate.  In and out, out and in, me, on top of the gate, safe because I was in your arms, my father's big strong arms.” Recalling events that may or may not have happened, people he may or may not have known, an elderly father weaves his life, funny, angry, poignant, as if in a dream.  His daughter, perched outside his window, as close as the pandemic allows, responds with conflicting memories.  They sing and argue, they broach dangerous ground, their profound love apparent despite themselves, until the visiting hour is up. This moving new play ab
