This money will support the project, which will offer four weeks of workshops in visual arts, music, performance and digital, led by professional artists who work across these disciplines.
Fiona Doring, Director of Impact Arts said: “We’re
thrilled that our Cashback to the Future programme has received support from
Creative Scotland’s Open Project Funding.
“The programme has secured some very
special artists and performers as tutors to work with disadvantaged 14-19 year
olds as part of an exciting and varied creative programme, ending with
performance and exhibition events.
“This added support will be hugely important in ensuring
that the young people taking part get the very most they can from the
programme, which will hopefully help them embark upon a rewarding lifelong
relationship with the arts.”
For a list of the artists who will be leading Cashback to the Future workshops, please visit the Cashback section of the website.
Programmes will be running in Glasgow, Edinburgh and Ayrshire from 11th July until 4th August. Our brochure gives further details.
The programme is funded through the Scottish Government’s Cashback to the Future programme, which uses the seized proceeds of crime to back community projects helping disadvantaged young people.
