Creative Pathways Glasgow is Back!

Creative Pathways Glasgow kicks off on the 5th August! Impact Arts is looking forward to welcoming young people to an exciting new programme of set design, props, hair, theatrical makeup and the opportunity to make a music video!

Urban Green Community Garden Project , Castlemilk

An exciting new project is about to enter its first stages, as Impact Arts begin working with young people on the design of a community garden. The idea behind the project is to promote health and wellbeing within the area, and to create a legacy for the locals to develop and make use of - a beautiful space, created by the local community for the local community. Can't wait to see this project develop into something really special.

Yunus Centre for Social Business - Exchange Visit

Impact Arts was pleased to welcome a group of students from the University of Florence, Italy, through the Yunus Centre for Social Business who were on a cultural exchange to Glasgow. Impact Arts was approached by the Yunus Centre to host the visitors and share our models of Social Enterprise with them during a visit on Wednesday morning. The students visited The Factory, the Young Gallery and the Eco-chic Boutique to find out about Impact Arts' projects and enterprise activities. All of the visitors had a great time, and went away with plenty of products from the gallery and the Boutique, and lots of inspiration to take home!

Creative Pathways Showcase, Renfrewshire

The culmination of this 10 week programme is taking place on Thursday night in Paisley. Find out all about the event here.
