Building Futures Haerospray


The INOU’s Building Futures programme is a yearlong Quality Qualifications Ireland (QQI) accredited programme where participants work towards achieving a level 5 major award in Community Development. It includes eight taught modules, additional accredited & non accredited training/workshops, volunteer work and an 8-week workplace internships which draws on learner’s life experiences to equip learners with the knowledge, skills, competence and well-rounded toolkit to work within the community.

This article describes a creative learning experience for this year’s participants.

The Building Futures learners were a little apprehensive when told they were going to do a 2-day spray painting workshop with Haerospray (HSY Art).  However, this changed as soon as Hernán walked through the door.  He put their mind as ease immediately and there was plenty of laughing coming from the back garden but also, I don’t think I have ever seen them so quiet and engrossed in something.  They were hanging on his every word and watching him like a hawk afraid they would miss one movement of a spray can.
