Nerve Digital Summer Camp

We are so pleased to announce that we are running a series of FREE workshops for the entire week of 27th-31st July, for children and young people.

We have paired up with the Nerve Centre in Derry to offer a week of remote learning creative workshops. Due to the pandemic, and lockdown restrictions, these will all be online classes. We still plan to bring the creative spark into these FREE workshops because we believe that channeling your creative side has never been more important for our young people.

All courses will be run via Zoom (with maximum security and encryption in place) and once registration has been confirmed you will be sent the unique meeting code. Spaces are very limited and will be operating on a first come, first served basis.

Please find below details, and registration links, to our courses:
