Impact Arts are hiring a Creative Lead to deliver exciting workshops to LGBTQ+ young people aged 16+ attending Project Drag in partnership with LGBT Youth Scotland, funded by YouthLink.

Project Drag is an exciting programme of multi art form sessions that will engage LGBTQ+ young people (YP) with a wide range of creative activities associated with drag culture. The project will end with a celebration exhibition at the Youth Hub at Strathclyde Union on Sat 20 July 2024 as part of Glasgow Pride.

Sessions will be designed as tasters to allow the young people to dip in and out as well as to remain for the duration, building their knowledge over time.

Each session you will work alongside a Creative Assistant and a Youth Worker from the LGBT Youth Scotland (LGBTYS) team. A photographer will work with you to create final artworks towards the end of the programme, led by the young people and giving them an artwork to takeaway and some legacy for the project.
