Pop-up exhibition and sale of work by young people in Irvine

Young people taking part in the Creative Pathways employability programme in North Ayrshire will be holding a sale and exhibition of work at Trinity Church Hall at Bridgegate, Irvine KA12 8BJ on Wednesday 16th May 2018 from 4pm 6pm.

For the past eight weeks, ten unemployed 16-17 year olds from North Ayrshire have been working with Impact Arts’ artists and employability staff, learning creative skills and making artwork while getting close guidance and support to find employment, education or training.

At this exhibition event, the group will be selling screen-prints, photography, upcycled furniture and printed tote bags to raise money for Impact Arts’ programmes for children, young people and older people across Scotland.

It would be fantastic if you could come along and celebrate their achievements – if you are able to attend, please contact Matthew McWhinnie on 0141 575 3001 or email

Creative Pathways in North Ayrshire is funded by Skills Development Scotland, the Big Lottery Fund’s Our Bright Future fund and Inspiring Scotland.
