THE schedule of this year’s Make a Move youth culture festival is to be revealed later today.

A month of dance, music and art workshops are to take place across the city, with the festival culminating with a four day extravaganza of music, dance and art events running from July 25.

Now in its second year, the Make a Move Festival has a particular emphasis on social inclusion, healthy living and an alternative lifestyle approach for young people and especially those from marginalised communities.

The festival also aims to celebrate and develop the art forms within the Urban Culture for young Limerick artists and audiences.

It will be showcasing break-dancing, hip-hop dancing, DJ performances and street art.

Workshops will feature both local and international top talents in the Hip Hop world with Barry Burke, professional dancer Tommy Gunns Ly from America.

He is best known for a dance collective called Ill Abilities, made up of dangers from across Europe with various physical limitations.

Make a Move will once again be holding its flagship Block Party event on Saturday July 27, while it will wrap up in Dr John’s Bar on Sunday, July 28.
