We will welcome children's authors and illustrators to the museum to present creative, interactive workshops with our guests. We will also welcome some well-known personalities to visit our Story-Corner to bring old favourites and new tales to life. Banyan Theatre Company will travel south to visit us for two mesmerising and captivating performances of Goldilocks and the Three Bears. There'll be (friendly) spooky activities in celebration of Halloween, Maisy Mouse Tea Parties, Story Cube sessions, Set Design Workshops, Dora Interactive Spanish Story-Telling, Campfire Stories, a Where's Wally Day and lots lots more!

Our involvement as an Associated Partner of 'WEAVE', a European project managed by 'Explora, The Children's Museum of Rome' in Italy (, 'Waag Society' in the Netherlands ( and 'Association Art Land' in Bulgaria ( is now at an end.

As  an Associated Partner, Imaginosity, Dublin Childrens Museum sent 2 facilitators Rebecca Dolan and Liz Tyndall staff to take part in  3 free access ZigZag events in Amsterdam, Sofia and Rome (September-October 2014) working side by side with 'Waag Society'/'Association Art Land'/'Explora' staff, 3 international textile artists and art student groups to offer textile workshops to children, families and schools. Rebecca also took part in an international training meeting in Sofia learning about textile art.

The 3 free festivals in Amsterdam, Sofia and Rome were huge successes and Imaginosity would like to thank the project organisers for inviting us to take part!

'WEAVE' is a project developed with the support of the Culture Programme of the European Union.
