The Edge Youth Diversion Project is a project of Waterford and South Tipperary Community Youth Service (WSTCYS). WSTCYS have a wide variety of youth and community projects across Waterford and South Tipperary and they are very much a partner in the promotion of the #littlethings campaign.
Aside from the Edge project, WSTCYS have used the #littlethings messages throughout their work with young people, families, communities, staff and volunteers by incorporating them into their programmes and by displaying the posters throughout their centres.
Carrick on Suir Tidy Towns commissioned the Edge Youth Diversion Project, under the guidance of Artist Kenneth T Grant, to design and paint a mural. The ten young people involved decided to have the #littlethings campaign as the theme.
The Edge Project is located in the Youth Resource Centre at New Street, Carrick-on-Suir and combines a diverse and activity packed programme for teenagers aged 12 to 18 years. The project is co-funded by the Irish Youth Justice Service and the European Social Fund.
Names of participating young people in this mural art project: Nicole, Chloe, Molly, Roisin, Shauna, Evan, Lee, Taylor, Harry and Dylan.
This project was co-funded by Carrick on Suir Business Association (COSBA) and the Carrick on Suir Municipal Council and coordinated by the Tudor Artisan Hub.
