Letterkenny Community Centre

Letterkenny Community Centre has launched a children’s art competition with the theme: ‘Letterkenny Community Centre 2121’.

The community organisation is asking children to use their talents to imagine what Letterkenny Community Centre will look like one hundred years from now in 2121.

The winners of each age category will have their artwork locked in a time capsule to be opened in 100 years’ time and will also receive a €50 Shop LK voucher.

The overall winner will also be awarded a 10-year membership of Letterkenny Community Centre and a €100 Shop LK voucher.

The art competition is part of an overall drive by Letterkenny Community Centre to better understand the needs of the local community now and in the future.

As part of this initiative, Letterkenny Community Centre has also launched a community consultation for local people aged 16 and over to share their views on the future of the
centre.

Speaking on the launch of the initiative, Letterkenny Community Centre’s management committee chairperson, Philip O’Kennedy, said the world is rapidly changing and Letterkenny Community Centre is determined to evolve to meet the changing needs of the local community.

"We see the children’s art competition and community consultation as an invitation to the local community in Letterkenny to co-design the future of Letterkenny Community Centre so that it continues to meet their needs for years to come.”

The competition is open to under-16s and the prize for the overall winning entry will be a 10-year membership of Letterkenny Community Centre.
