A new exhibition has gone on display to showcase work by young people living in Tiree and on the mainland.
The exhibition is being supported by culture, heritage and arts assembly for Argyll and the Isles (CHARTS) and will run at Dunoon Burgh
Hall until Sunday January 26.
Using filmmaking, digital drawing and animation, the event is part of CHARTs Creative, Confident, Connected, Youth Programme.
This is the first youth initiative that has been supported by charity, which has almost 400 members, since it started.
The exhibition shows how complementary activities in Tiree and Dunoon, have helped young people to work with professional practitioners to build up creativity and confidence, also linking up with eachother.
All those who have taken part have been working towards recognised UK arts awards and are expected to have competed them by next month.
CHARTS chairperson Jo McLean said Creative Digital was to be celebrated for connecting young people with their regional
And added: ‘By continuing to help create opportunities for young people,
supported by professionals of the highest calibre, we hope to assist young
ambassadors and enthusiasts of the arts to have their voices heard. A key CHARTS members ambition is to establish a Youth Arts Advisory Group, celebrating and resourcing interests of young people region wide. I am delighted that Creative, Confident, Connected, through Creative Digital, boasts the first steps towards this aim.’
Jenny Hunter who is Creative Arts and Education Manager at
Dunoon Burgh Hall said: ‘This is an exciting new project where Young People have been leading on the development, design and curation of their own exhibition working with artist Sandi Kiehlmann. The project itself is an innovative collaboration between young people in Tiree and Dunoon.’
