We are dedicated to creating a more inclusive, diverse and representative creative sector in Scotland and beyond. It is our belief that all young people should have the opportunity to explore their creativity and be equipped with the resources and support they need to reach their full potential.
Our bespoke creative workshops and educational resources enable young people aged 8-25 to express themselves and tell their stories, regardless of the barriers they may face.
We believe that everyone has the right to be creative - and we are here to make that happen.
