During the summer of 2018 facilitator Alan King led this project with DYT members to devise, create and publish original comedic sketches. Using Design Thinking processes, this built upon the workshops Alan led at the residential intensive weekend in Feb 2018 and as part of our regular Saturday workshop programme in the spring of 2018.
The sketches incorporated aspects of living in Dublin and aimed to produce comedy that is culturally specific to Dublin and Ireland. The goal was to produce high quality films, introduce the members to film making and set a precedent for other similar projects. Funding for the project was generously provided by the Dublin City Council North Inner City constituency office. Eleven DYT members took part and 3 short films were produced.
Keep Sketch was Alan King’s final assessment project on the inaugural Certificate in Digital Creativity in Youth Settings (Level 8) at Maynooth University . His participation was supported by Youth Theatre Ireland.
