If opportunity doesn’t knockbuild a door

The Waterford Festival of Learning, 19th, 20th & 21st March 2013, aims to first and foremost celebrate learning. This three-day festival will showcase the broad range of learning opportunities available across Waterford.

All events are free and open to the public in accessible venues including community centres, historical centres, the city’s parks, our libraries, our theatres, our sports grounds, our training centres, our schools, colleges and on the street.

There is a wide selection of dynamic and interactive activities to cater for all tastes – guided tours, exhibitions, open-days, walks, workshops, musical performances, demonstrations, displays, lessons and launches, each designed to welcome and encourage public participation.

Learning is about involvement and fun, and the realisation of your potential and aspirations.

While learning may be challenging, it is more so rewarding and satisfying. Learning opens up new opportunities and makes life all the more fulfilling and enjoyable.

Learning is still the single most valuable and universal opportunity available for personal development and growth. From a child we all have the curiosity to learn and develop, and optimise our potential. We all have goals to achieve.

Our lives revolve around learning and it is said that we can learn everything we need. The 2013 Waterford Festival of Learning gives everyone the opportunity to appreciate the many avenues for learning available daily across the city and encourages people to avail of them.

Waterford Festival of Learning 2013 has a wonderful line-up of learning events, each of these will showcase ‘kernels’ of learning which will spark awareness of the potential of learning and enthuse people to a lifestyle of learning.

Don’t miss this unique opportunity to explore learning and add momentum to your lifelong learning journey.
