In line with Creative Scotland’s values of creative learning this programme would not only be beneficial from an individual aspect but also a societal level.

This programme would consist of a series of workshops that would focus on a particular theme / skill / medium / practice and teams of teens to young adults would work together to produce a piece ‘work’. Each workshop will be delivered by an emergent artist who is well versed in a particular type of theme, skill, medium, practice. The primary objective of these workshops is for young people to see the different career opportunities available in the arts and design.

The individual will hopefully gain a better understanding of their own creative inclinations and how to channel their creativity into marketable or career making skills. The secondary objective to these workshops to the cultural activity is the social aspect of peer integration with group tasking as opposed to solo efforts. A group of peers with similar interests conversing to problem solve and working as a part of a team. We will encourage the networking of young people through collaborative creative working. The intercommunication of young creatives from the same areas, who have similar artistic aspirations, to establish local connections is imperative to building enterprising creative organisations for its citizens and improving community resilience.

This would then include all 3 areas of Creative Scotland’s definition of creative learning. As the participants would be learning ‘in’ an art form, developing several creative learning skills and approaches but also ‘through’ an art form – sociable, teamwork and problem-solving skills.

This project supports the emergent artists involved and provides quality arts workshops that are geographically and financially accessible for the youth communities of our focus areas.
