Free Animation and Performance Workshops in North Ayrshire this Easter

Impact Arts are hosting a free 5 day animation and performance programme called Gallery 37 over the Easter holidays for 14-19 year olds.


Based at Impact Arts, Irvine and open to young people in North Ayrshire aged between 14 and 19, this is a brilliant opportunity for young people to try out animation, performance, drama, music, dance, design and photography and work with a professional artist for the week, before taking part in an exciting showcase!

The Gallery 37 programme uses a variety of artistic and creative approaches to engage young people aged 14-19 who are at risk of disengaging from school. The programme is a celebration of young people and their creativity and empowers them to gain increased confidence, social and communication skills, teamwork, creative skills and ultimately to stay in education or training.

Natalie McFadyen White, Programme Manager for Impact Arts said:

“Gallery 37 is a great opportunity for young people to come together and experience new creative activities, make new friends and build their skills. You don’t need any experience and the week of activities is completely free. We’ve got an egg-xciting showcase planned at the end of the week which local residents are very welcome to attend!”

A longer Gallery 37 programme will run from 13th July in North, East and South Ayrshire for 4 weeks.
