Teach & Learn


 At EPIC The Irish Emigration Museum, our Education Programme centers around active learning, providing engaging spaces where students progress their practical skills in communication, media, science and the arts. Focusing on the power of stories and storytelling as a way to build empathy, we work with learners to expand our shared understandings of Irish heritage. Our workshops also encourage active global citizenship through thematic content exploring social issues such as the experiences of minority groups, gender, migration, hidden histories and human rights. 

Prepare to explore cross-curricula subjects including History, Geography, Science, Media, Technology, Art & Design, Drama, and Civic, Social & Political Education, while taking part in innovative skills-based outputs such as coding, illustration, role-playing, zine-making, problem-solving, designing, building, creating, and more!
