Hello everyone and welcome to this week’s round of updates from Impact Arts! Normally published on a Monday, here it is three days early as a little treat!

of original artwork is being mounted and framed for the exhibition at Out of
the Blue Drill Hall 8th – 15th July.
On Thursday Impact Arts helped celebrate the 92nd Birthday of Sir

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.
