Eurochild is Tigh Filí’s most significant programme, promoting cultural literacy, integration and dialogue between children from different cultures through art and poetry. The programme culminates each year in the publication of the Eurochild Anthology of Children’s Artwork and Poetry, a multilingual mother-tongue volume comprising the work of 1000 young poets and artists from all over Europe, selected from 10,000 entries.
‘A celebration of youthful creativity in Europe… a vivid demonstration of Europe’s capacity to share ideals and feelings.’ Micheál Martin, Minister for Foreign Affairs.
‘What a wonderful project Eurochild is and what a wonderful work the children produce! I cannot imagine a better way for children from many lands to learn to communicate creatively than a project like this.’ Siobhán Parkinson, CBI Laureate na n-Óg – Laureate for Children’s Literature
‘In reading some of the work submitted for this anthology I was powerfully reminded of the impulse which first led me to my own tentative steps towards creative writing. When I was in school I very often felt that poetry or art was like something in a museum, something inert and consigned to a cabinet, hermetically sealed. It took some time for me to feel as if I could own it, understand it, make it. I’m delighted that these contributors feel their entitlement to the arts. While these poems celebrate the creativity of our young people many of them reflect or sometimes find their origins in the struggle to grow and be nurtured in conditions of adversity. In the face of and in spite of that adversity these children have an extraordinary urge to be creative – they are in a very real sense the future of our societies.’ Leanne O’Sullivan, poet.
