4 - a Creative Collaboration in Paisley and Possil ...
4 is a part of a two-year long creative project led by drama practitioner and playwright, Nicola McCartney in Paisley. It aims to showcase and celebrate the spirit, aspirations and creativity of young people who do not normally have ready access to or experience of the creative process and creative people.
You can see the difference the project has made in this short film:
The project is taking place for the first time in Possil too with Young Peoples Futures, where the artists in residence are sound artist Duncan Chapman and photographer and film-maker Basharat Khan.
The sound outputs created by the young people, called from 'Possilpark to Cove Park', have featured on Radiophrenia, BBC Radio 3 and BBC Radio 4 and of the deeply personal creative writing developed, some have remained private while others have been dramatised and filmed.
4 is a two-year long experience, co-created and directed by the interests of the young people themselves and inspired by their language and stories, whether sung, spoken, written, filmed or digital.
From March 2020 our Possil Posse are connecting online with their new artist in residence Steven Grainger.
They will continue to share creative ideas, as well as develop their friendships, over the coming weeks in Articulate's virtual space - stay tuned for more info.
4 is funded by Creative Scotland, Renfrewshire Council,
the Flightpath Fund, the Commonweal Fund, Glasgow Life and
is supported by Young People's Futures and Neighbourhood Watch Scotland.
