EXCEL 2017 is Mayo County Council Arts Service’s annual celebration of young people’s creativity (ages 13-19).  This year we have fabulous events taking place in the month of November.  We have a particular emphasis on youth drama and theatre.  We have also teamed up with the various Art Venues in Mayo to provide a wide range of arts activities throughout the County.  Activities include film screenings, talks, tours, workshops in graffiti, printing and drawing.  We also have a series of workshops and masterclasses taking place with specific youth organisations throughout Mayo.
