Young people: Cashback to the Future

Impact Arts’ Cashback for Communities-funded programme - entitled Cashback to the Future – this summer engaged over 150 young people in Ayrshire, Edinburgh and Glasgow in in-depth creative workshops led by accomplished artists who offered masterclasses in visual arts, music, performance and digital work.

Aimed at 14-19 year olds, these workshops offered truly free, safe and creative spaces for participants to be inventive and imaginative, with first-rate guidance on hand from skilled creative staff and volunteers.

Being funded by Cashback for Communities, the programme engaged those who may not ordinarily have had the chance to take part in such activities. Referrals came from a wide range of valued partners and support agencies, including projects for unaccompanied asylum seekers, local community centres, social care charities and the NHS’s child and adolescent mental health support teams.

The programme ended with a series of stunning showcase events. To get a more comprehensive look at what was accomplished, have a look at the dedicated Cashback to the Future blog, which documents a truly unforgettable summer for the young people and artists involved.
