David Shrigley, internationally acclaimed artist and Turner Prize nominee, is Patron of The Young Gallery.
David is passionate about supporting the Glasgow based project having lived and worked in the city since gaining his Bachelors in Fine Art at the Glasgow School of Art in 1991:
“I became involved with The Young Gallery because I want to give something back to the city that I live and work in. Through The Young Gallery, Impact Arts gives a quality artistic experience to 300 children living in the East End of Glasgow each year, and to over 1000 members of the local community and I’m excited to be involved with such a brilliant project.
“I’d like to help children in Glasgow to realise the practical, social and emotional benefits of creating artwork and I’ll be working with Impact Arts to help The Young Gallery fulfil its aims of transforming lives and providing a legacy for children in the East End and across Glasgow.”
The team at Impact Arts work hard to secure over £1.5m of funding per year to provide life changing creative experiences for more than 5000 people.
