Introducing the Eurochild Project:

Eurochild International Youth and Child Arts (founded 1995) is one of the most important projects operated by Tigh Filí Cultural Centre (Cork City, Ireland). The annual competition for children receives multilingual poems and art entries from thousands of young children from all over the world. The best poems and art entries are selected for publication in the multilingual mother-tongue Eurochild Anthology of Artwork and Poetry– by kids, for kids. Read More  


It is with a sad and heavy heart I draw Eurochild to close having reached 21 years. Eurochild has made the way through ‘A Child’s Famine’ (the first publication,1996) to Eurochild 2014. Year after year she worked her way from Ireland through Europe winding up in Serbia. She tried hard to survive but became a victim of hard times.
I would like to thank all young artist and poets that made her such a success. Children’s Poetry and Art must survive. Their thoughts should always be cherished.
A special thanks to Ecole, Nantes, all our European Schools, Teachers and the Festival of Light in Serbia. Moments of time never to be forgotten.
Words like stars shining on a page in Eurochild forever and a day.
Maire Bradshaw

“Both the artwork and poetry in this Anthology are timely reminders of children’s and young people’s capacity to engage effortlessly with different types of culture and expression.”

Emily Logan, Ombudsman for Children, Ireland

“I believe that children should have access and be part of artistic processes that nurture their emotional intelligence and life. I want to congratulate Tigh Filí in Cork for all their hard work in creating this anthology and to thank all the teachers and parents who have encouraged their children to take part.”

Niamh Sharkey, Laureate na nÓg
