Impact Arts’ Cashback to The Future programme – funded through CashBack for Communities will continue to offer young people across Scotland access to free weekly workshops led by accomplished Creatives, through our CashBack Hubs.
Aimed at 14-19 year olds, the workshops are currently taking place online on Wednesdays & Thursday evenings and & Saturday mornings, offering free, safe and creative spaces for participants to be inventive and imaginative. No previous knowledge or skills are required, and we will ensure that everyone has all that they need to get involved.
Participants will be supported by a fully trained artists, as well as a youth worker.
Workshops, tutorials and support will be delivered on a 1:1 and group basis and will focus on well-being as well as creative fun. The sessions will explore a range of techniques and different themes relating to the interests of our participants. Through taking part in the project, all of our young people will receive an art pack full of new art materials and participants will also gain a Dynamic Youth.
Participants will be able to choose from a number of creative workshops including Visual Art, Music, Creative Writing, Digital Arts and more.
CashBack For Schools
Impact Arts is now able to provide fun, creative, supported and engaging sessions for secondary school pupils who are struggling in mainstream classes. Occurring at set times over a 6 week period, you can refer a pupil to the course to join year group peers from across the country. In each 1.5 hour session the pupil will be supported in a group session by a professional artist and a youth worker to engage in visual arts activities which provide the young person with routine, teach them new creative skills, build their confidence and develop vital soft skills such as team work, problem solving, communication and decision making. There will also be an opportunity for the pupils to undertake a problem solving SQA unit.
Impact Arts will provide each pupil who is referred with an Art Pack full of materials so that they can participate fully, but it is requested that the pupils have a quiet space to join the Impact Arts sessions digitally.
