The Carson Awards 2017

Gallery – The Carson Awards 2017The IEF was delighted that our supporters Tony Carson and actors Dan Gordon and Adrian Dunbar joined the Fund recently to celebrate the creative talents found in integrated schools around Northern Ireland.

Students, staff and supporters of integrated education gathered at New-Bridge Integrated College on Thursday 19 October for the annual Carson Awards showcase, which honours young people who are winners in the scheme established by Tony and named in tribute to his father, the legendary Belfast comedian Frank Carson.

The awards are an exciting opportunity for young people to express themselves through the arts, under the theme ‘What Integrated Education Means to Me’.  Prizes were presented for art projects of all types, and work completed by senior students under the Carson Bursary scheme was on display.
