Baboró is an advocate of arts in education, recognising the benefits of introducing the arts and creativity to the classroom. We understand school programmes as a particularly effective and accessible way to bring art to children and young people.
We have been pioneering in arts and education interventions in Galway schools and deliver school outreach projects during our festival and throughout the year. We offer projects that engage and encourage young people in their learning, and continually find ways to affirm the advantage to children and educators of integrating art into curriculum.

A Small Tale
Baboró and Punchdrunk Enrichment have partnered to bring Punchdrunk’s teacher-led literacy project, A Small Tale, to primary schools in Galway. The project provides teachers with training, resource packs, and a toolkit of handmade props and materials to use in guiding their students through the experience.
BEAST! (2012 - 2016)
As a cornerstone of our outreach programme, BEAST! was part of our strategy to develop models to encourage primary school teachers to explore cross-curricular teaching and education through the use of creativity.
