Impact Arts’ Cashback to The Future programme – funded through CashBack for Communities offers young people across Scotland access to free workshops led by accomplished Creatives, through various sub programmes.

CashBack To The Future - Summer

Cashback to the Future, our creative summer celebration of young people's talents and imagination, is running throughout July 2021! Referrals are now open for the programme, which will be running face-face in Edinburgh, Glasgow, and Ayrshire, as well as a virtual group.

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 are looking for referrals and sign-ups in Edinburgh, Glasgow, Ayrshire and 1 virtual group which is open to young people from across Scotland.

The workshops are entirely free and will take place Tuesdays - Fridays from July 6th until July 30th 2021.
