£289,087 to boost youth arts provision in Edinburgh and the Lothians

Creative Scotland is delighted to announce £399,000 support to help boost youth arts provision in Edinburgh and the Lothians.

The funding is being announced as part of Scotland’s National Youth Arts Strategy Time To Shine and will be used to create a network of nine regional Youth Arts Hubs from a total funding package of £3.1m, across the country.

The Hubs – in Aberdeen and North East, Argyll, Ayrshire, Edinburgh, Fife, Glasgow, Highlands, Moray and West Dunbartonshire – are being formed through partnerships between local and national arts and youth services providers, to increase access to youth arts across Scotland across a range of art forms.

Out of the Blue Arts and Education Trust will work in partnership with youth and arts providers to deliver the Creative Mix/Youth Hive project – a hive of networked and staged multi-arts activity for Edinburgh and the Lothians. The Hive will build on activities currently undertaken with young people by the partners and develop and promote innovative practice in youth arts.  The project plan includes the development and creation of creative apprenticeships, traineeships and work experience opportunities for young people.

Youth Arts Hub partners for this area include The Bongo Club, Creative Electric, Red Kite Animation, Strange Town, Verden Studios, North Edinburgh Arts, Lucky Frame, Scottish Kids are Making Movies, Active Inquiry, PyroCeltica, WHALE Arts, Edinburgh City Libraries & Information Service.
