Young Scot and Creative Scotland have launched a national search for young people in the Highlands with a passion and enthusiasm for the arts to join Scotland’s new National Youth Arts Advisory Group, to help shape the future of culture and creativity.
Young Scot and Creative Scotland are searching for talented volunteers, aged 14 to 23, from diverse backgrounds in the Highlands to join the advisory panel, which will ‘play a key role in setting out an artistic vision and recommendations to help Scotland’s young people to flourish and achieve their goals using arts and culture’.
Over the past two years, the group has delivered Scotland’s first national youth arts strategy called Time to Shine, hosted the country’s first youth arts conference and supported 87 projects across Scotland.
Louise Macdonald, chief executive of Young Scot, said: ‘Our research shows that young people in Scotland are incredibly passionate about the arts and keen to engage in cultural activities. We’re on the hunt for young people with talent, strong opinions and a passion for the arts. This is a brilliant chance to grow your skills and influence Scotland’s national policies around the arts and culture. Put yourself in the spotlight and get your voice heard by applying today.’
