Turn your perceptions about what you can do with Gaelic and Irish upside down with a range of fun bilingual Gaelic contemporary arts workshop in Circus Skills, Graffiti, Rap and more! Of course Gaelic's 'an ancient & beautiful language' and also perfect for trying new things, being silly, adventurous and most of all, having fun! 

Are you looking for an innovative and fun way to engage children and adults through Gaelic, Irish or bilingually and promote the languages as accessible, practical and enjoyable means of communication?

Ariel is a highly experienced workshop facilitator, having delivered over 900 workshops in more than 245 school, community and festival contexts, both in Scotland, Northern Ireland and the Republic of Ireland, and directly engaging with 10,000 children, young people & adults. Why not ask about a workshop & stilt walkabout entertainment & promotion package for your festival? Information on how Ariel can animate & raise the profile of your event is here


Ariel can deliver stand-alone workshops for different classes in schools over a day-long period, and you could also chat to Ariel about a tailored package including a variety of workshops for weeklong festivals, summer/holiday camps, or as part of broader creative arts programs & street theatre/spectacle projects, combining drama, lantern-making, circus skills, Celtic art & graffiti!

“An amazing force of nature in its purest form - the kids are very lucky to have such a terrific role model in their midst. Sometimes I’ve been lucky enough meet people who no matter what language they speak can communicate with anyone –  Ariel is one of them.”

Dan Gordon, reknowned scriptwriter for the Lyric Theatre/Ulster Scots Agency/Foras na Gaeilge Pat and Plain Project.

Also, a great way to reduce costs is by sharing travel costs across a number of local groups – why not find out if other schools, community or language groups in your area would also be interested in fun, bilingual workshops with Ariel while she's in your locality?
