The Impact Arts Youth Steering Group who now go by the name of
the ‘Sketchy Youths‘ met earlier this month for a development day. The group (who
have all participated previously in one of Impact Arts’ programmes), have now
been joined by the Youth Trustee and Board member Rosa Hackett, a recent
graduate of Glasgow School of Art in Painting and Printmaking.
The Sketchy Youths are (left to right) young designer Lewis, trainee web developer Brendan and aspiring writer and
filmmaker Sofia, with Youth Trustee Rosa.The group love creative expression, believe in the power
of the arts and are committed to creating a platform for young people’s voices
to be heard.
It was a productive session where the group wrote their
manifesto, spent some time planning the launch of their blog and worked on the
Sketchy Youths branding.
We can wait to hear and find out more about the ‘Sketchy Youths’ and their plans for the future. Watch this space for more exciting updates!
