22 years, the charity has supported people and communities, using arts and
creativity to improve lives across Scotland. We are now
recruiting trustees who are interested in enhancing the lives of children,
young people, and older people in Scotland.
In its last financial
year, the charity worked with over 4000 people in Scotland in arts related
activity. Supporting over 400 young people develop their employability skills,
working with over 200 isolated older people and 298 children under 12, the charity is funded by
a range of Scottish and UK partner organisations and community fundraising activities.

exhibitions and performances at the end of our collective work and the impact
on personal and social confidence is often remarkable. For example, our recent exhibition of young
artists from 2 schools in Glasgow at The Young Gallery, demonstrated the
creative ability of children, unleashing their talent, building confidence and
connecting the schools to a broader Glasgow community. If you haven’t visited
the gallery, do!

a fresh perspective and build on the success of the organisation to date.”
