This spring, Epilepsy Ireland in partnership with Helium Arts will host a series of film workshops for young people age 16-21 living with epilepsy. The workshops will take place in Galway, Dublin and Cork and include a hands-on introduction to filmmaking and plot generating.

The workshops will feed in to a film camp to be held this summer which will see participants facilitated in making a film about epilepsy to be used for raising awareness of epilepsy among other teenagers with and without epilepsy.

Led by professional artists from Helium Arts with support from Epilepsy Ireland regional branches, all the workshops are free and include lunch.

The free workshops offer a taster of what's to come during the film camp in Summer 2017 and some of the creations will feature in the final film!
