Cashback to the Future Summer Programme (Glasgow, Edinburgh, Ayrshire, Renfrewshire)

Cashback to the Future offers a completely free four-week summer programme, giving young people the chance to work with professional artists, musicians, filmmakers and actors on youth-led creative projects, culminating in a one-off showcase event at the end of the month.

Whatever your level of experience, Cashback to the Future is for you - whether you consider yourself creative or not, this is a fantastic opportunity to make the most of your summer by working with enthusiastic, friendly and skilled tutors who will help you reach artistic heights!

We will be confirming our artist team and venues for the project very shortly - for now, we are looking for referrals and sign-ups in Edinburgh, Glasgow, North Ayrshire, East Ayrshire and Renfrewshire. The workshops are entirely free and will take place Tuesdays - Fridays from July 2nd until July 27th 2018.
