ARTiculation Competition

articulation competitionARTiculation logoarticulation competitionarticulation competition

ARTiculation Ireland is a public speaking competition which promotes the appreciation and discussion of art, artefacts and architecture in secondary schools throughout Ireland. The competition seeks to engage students between 16-18 years, regardless of background or experience, with art, artefacts and architecture to develop the confidence and ability to express their opinions and conclusions.
Participating students are offered the chance to deliver a ten minute presentation before their peers and a wider audience about a work of art, an artefact or piece of architecture of their choice, through a series of internal school heats and regional heats across Ireland with the chance of being selected for the National final.

Students involved in ARTiculation Ireland  are invited to explore selected local galleries and Museums through a series of Discovery Sessions which are held in Tipperary County Museum, Clonmel or in class.   The days are designed to introduce students and teachers to ARTiculation Ireland, improve personal observation, analysis skills and help participants become more comfortable with the act of public speaking.

Involvement in Articulation helps

  • develop pupils’ verbal and communication skills
  • raise self-confidence and aspirations
  • introduce young people and teachers from all backgrounds and interest groups to their local art institutions

Information packs, Discovery Day timetable and application forms are available on request from julia.walsh@tipperarycoco.ie, but if you are interested in finding out more please complete the Expression of Interest form.
