Super Paua Stories began in April 2020 during the first lockdown in Ireland. They commissioned 8 stories for young people 12 and under, and recorded and made the final pieces from kitchens, bedrooms, and wardrobes! Since then they’ve made two more seasons. Season 2, Scéalta Super Paua, were stories written as Gaeilge or bilingually and produced with support from axis: Ballymun. Opowiadania Super Paua is their third series, produced with support from Riverbank Arts Centre and axis:Ballymun. This series focuses on Polish language and culture. Polish was the second most spoken language in Ireland in the 2016 census.

Super Paua is an Irish artist-led collective that makes work for young people in a variety of languages, places, and forms. Humour, social relevance, and respect define our work. Super Paua wants to give you things you didn’t think you’d like, but which you find beautiful and necessary once we’ve given them to you. They want to surprise you with the wickedness of your sense of humour, the extent of your empathy, and your bravery in the face of risk. They use public arts projects to tell exciting and empowering stories and to nurture human potential. Their super powers are laughter and solidarity, patience and flexibility, and their focus of wellness in the midst of a world that is not well.
