Impact Arts
Impact Arts are providing online courses for ages 14-26. They are providing 5 courses to help cater for all, with drop-in, 4 week and 10 week courses available. The courses available are:

MAKE SPACE: Ideal as an introduction to our work, or for those looking for something as and when they like. Drop-in, virtual, creative sessions led by experienced artists for anyone aged 14-26 living in Scotland’s Central Belt. Sessions are fun, varied and will help young people protect their mental wellbeing as well as bringing joy and structure to their day. No creative experience necessary.

CASHBACK TO THE FUTURE: Ideal for those looking for something structured to ‘do’ over the summer. Great for anyone aged 14-19 who may not be enjoying school or who is finding things challenging at the moment. From 7th July, for 4 weeks, we will help young people explore and develop creative skills across a whole host of areas like Visual Arts, Film, Performance, Creative Writing, Music and more. The focus is on fun and we will provide participants with all the kit needed to get involved.

CREATIVE PATHWAYS x2: Ideal for those looking to find a new route to employment/qualifications. We know that formal education is not for everyone, and that finding a route to employment can be tricky. For 16-26yr olds that are not at College or in Full-time employment. Over 10 weeks and using the arts as a focus, we will support young people to feel more confident, overcome some of the hurdles they might be facing and gain qualifications. All delivery will be online, and participants will be supported by an artist and opportunities co-ordinator who will provide 1:2:1 and group support.

MAKE IT YOUR OWN (MIYO): Ideal for those who are leaving Care and preparing to enter into their own tenancy – or perhaps have done so within the last year? We will work with participants on a 1:2:1 basis to explore how they can turn their space into a home. Participants will learn new skills and get help to turn their pad into somewhere they can call their own.
