Hands-On Cove Park is our innovative community engagement programme. We provide free creative workshops for children and young people as well as talks and events for the local community.

The Paul Hamlyn Foundation has awarded Cove Park a second Explore and Test grant, enabling us to continue the programme until September 2020. This award will allow us to develop our work with children and young people and broaden our reach; we have seen the impact of bringing artists and local children together and will continue to do this. Working in Argyll and Bute, Inverclyde and West Dunbartonshire, we will offer our core programme of Saturday Studios at Cove Park, whilst also developing our outreach work. This will allow us to begin new conversations, reach different participants and improve the range of creative opportunities available in our area.

Hands-On runs in parallel with Cove Park’s international artists residency programme, allowing us to benefit from the creative talent we host each year at Cove Park. By working with our former residents to develop workshops we can provide unique experiences for both our young people and for our artists, who benefit immensely from being able to work within the programme.

Saturday Studios is our new series of monthly workshops for children. Each session will be taught by a different artist who will share their own techniques, skills and experiences in these creative and engaging workshops.
