Young unemployed people in Glasgow sought for environmental arts project

Tue 15th May 2018

Next month in Glasgow, Impact Arts will launch a new block of Creative Pathways – our arts-focused employability programme for young people.

This project is in partnership with the Big Lottery’s Our Bright Future initiative which encourages young people to lead progressive change in their communities. As such, the work will have a strong environmental focus.

Participants will get invaluable hands-on experience of environmental art, landscaping, designing greenspaces and growing and planting.

They will also learn about biodiversity and gauge the local community’s thoughts on green issues and how they affect quality of life.

This programme is also funded by Skills Development Scotland‘s Stage 2 employability fund. Those taking part will get advice on CVs and job-hunting, and will have the chance to complete an SQA stage 3 award on employability.

Additionally, eligible participants will receive a £55 training allowance plus travel expenses.

Workshops start the week commencing 25th June 2018 and will run until 7th September 2018, Tuesday until Friday each week, 9.30am until 4pm. They will be based at The Factory, 319 Craigpark Drive, Dennistoun, Glasgow.

If you are interested in making a referral or would like to find out more, please contact Impact Arts’ Programme Manager Jamie Proudfoot on 0141 575 3001 / 07884 582459 or email [email protected].
