THE CULTURE CLUB - accessing Scotland's arts scene ...
We are delighted to be part of Glasgow Life’s FAB project, which provides cultural and sporting activities for care experienced young people aged 14 - 26. Our Culture Club creates regular points of access to arts, creative and cultural activity across the city.
Now Culture Club goes virtual ...
We continue our cultural adventures online.
We watch together and share our reactions from the comfort of our sofas via Zoom.
Since March, our activities have moved online and we have made virtual visits to museums, art galleries and cinemas. This has involved a wider group of young people, who have been very discriminating in their choice of event since the digital world has become our oyster. This shift has highlighted how much we miss being together, visiting friends and enjoying a live performance or cultural experiences as a group.
Through 2019 we took young people to everything from the Irn Bru Carnival to Bjork, Frank Quitely to Ben Okri, The King's panto to The Dark Carnival. The summer 2020 programme outline is here.
In 2020, with the support of the People's Health Lottery, we will continue arrange a variety of cultural activities, ideally on a quarterly basis, building upon the principles we have learned from our research with Abertay University: that young people prefer attending events with their peers, to understand the context of the performance as well as the place of performance, having refreshments provided at the interval and other supports as required.
