Are you passionate about achieving positive social change? Would you like to make Ireland – and the world – a better place?
The Alice Academy for Activists is your chance to learn campaign skills from leading activists and communications professionals.
We are offering 20 people the chance to participate in our residential bootcamp – free of charge – in Dublin in January 2024.
We will have guest inputs from seasoned campaigners, journalists and politicians, and you will have the opportunity to network and build links with other aspiring activists as you work and learn together over the course of three days.
The Academy will run from the evening of Thursday, 11th January to Sunday, 14th January 2024 in Dublin City Centre.
The event will kick-off with a welcome reception on Thursday evening, and finish with a wrap-up session on Sunday morning.
Participants will be required to be in attendance for the full duration of the course.
All participants will be provided with accommodation, free of charge, at the Hyatt Centric Hotel in the heart of the Liberties area of Dublin. The welcome reception on the Thursday evening will take place at this hotel.
The bootcamp sessions will take place at the nearby Hen’s Teeth Studio.
The Academy is open for applications from people aged 18 and above, from all walks of life, who are in the early stages of their progressive activism.
You might be a young person inspired by the Future Fridays movement; a parent who has unexpectedly found yourself having to advocate for medical treatment on behalf of your child; or a recent retiree who hopes to give your time to a cause you care about.
Participation in the Academy is free. This includes:
Applicants will be required to cover the costs of their travel to and from the Academy.
Applications for the Academy are now closed. We are currently reviewing applications, and applicants selected to be part of the Academy will be notified by mid-November.
