Argyll Youth Arts

26 November 2015

Argyll Youth Arts increases opportunities for young people in Argyll & Bute to experience creative arts activity. It is one of nine regional arts hubs developed as part of Creative Scotland‘s Time to Shine initiative, empowering young people through the arts and arts projects initiated and inspired by young people, supported by and working with arts professionals from their community and beyond.

Argyll Youth Arts positions young people directly in control of originating the programme in their region, supporting them to develop the skills and creative vision to realise events within their community and connect to an Argyll-wide network of youth arts activities. At the core of the programme and network are the Young Promoters and Youth Arts TV Channel Managers who will curate their own youth arts activities, as well as create a dynamic online presence for the region’s young creatives to connect, share and grow together.

Cove Park with other professional arts organisations including Dunnon Burgh Hall, Comar, Artmap Argyll, Artsqwest and The Tower form a Steering Group supporting the Young Promoters and Youth Arts TV Channel Managers as well as delivering a range of other activities.

The Argyll Youth Arts logo is the winning design of Grace Carroll, a student at Locgilphead High School, who was mentored by designer Maeve Redmond, a resident at Cove Park in 2014.
