Do you know or work with any young people who want to help remove barriers to art and creativity while also having fun? Children in Scotland are looking for children & young people to join the #AccessAllArtsFund Panel.
The Access All Arts Fund is an exciting project to help support children and young people access creative arts opportunities. They believe the arts (things like drawing and painting, making music, creative writing and acting) are for everyone. Creative activities like these are great fun and they can help people express themselves and support them to feel good.
But they know many young people face barriers to art and creativity, including disability, poverty, and poor mental health. They want this fund to help overcome these barriers, but they need your help.
Children in Scotland are looking for children and young people aged 11-25 to join the panel. If you are passionate about children and young people’s access to the arts, they’d love to hear from you! They are particularly keen to hear from young people who’ve experienced their own barriers to enjoying creative activities.
How will I take part?
They will be running five/six workshops between June and December 2022. These meetings will be a mix of online and in person, where possible, and they’ll work together to make changes to the existing Fund, relaunch it and choose which projects to fund.
You’ll help them work out how they can reach out to more children and young people and how they can share the stories of some of the young people who receive funding.
You don’t need any previous experience. Passion matters more than experience, and they’ll be there to help you at every step of the way.
How can I apply?
All you need to do is return the Application and Consent Form to Dana at email@example.com by 12pm on Mon 20 June 2022 to let them know you would like to be involved.
If you want more information or have any questions about the project, please get in touch with Dana (firstname.lastname@example.org).
