Sound Training College

This year, we started a collaboration with students from STC (Sound Training College) in Temple Bar. As part of their class time, they worked and organised all of our back of house needs, including site and production, health and safety, volunteer and artist coordination, giving them first hand experience in the festival scene.

This project aimed at empowering young people entering the festival scene to bring an arts festival in a public space to fruition. Their input had fabulous results for BlueFire Street Fest, and they managed each of their tasks professionally and responsibly. A great experience for them and ourselves overall!

“This world demands the qualities of youth: not a time of life but a state of mind, a temper of the will, a quality of imagination, a predominance of courage over timidity, of the appetite for adventure over the love of ease.”

Robert Kennedy, US Senator
