Canvastone is the inspiration of a cross-community group, Dromore Youth & Community Development Association (DYCDA) who have come together to address needs of disadvantaged young people living in the town and surrounding area.
An arts & craft product requiring disciplines in retail, IT, woodworking and printing, Canvastone offers an opportunity for the target group to manufacture and retail a niche product both directly through a dedicated gallery space and online.
