05 Mar Creative Pipeline, Perth
Creative Pipeline project is part of the Famous Grouse Ideas Centre, Perth. It supports young people age 16-25 who are currently not in education, employment or training into the Creative Industries.
In September of last year I had the privilege of working with Helen and some of the young people at Creative Pipeline. I provided training and ongoing support which enabled them to design, capture and edit a series of short films – the one below in particular – which illustrated the creative learning opportunities open to young people, creatives and small businesses in Perth and Kinross.
I’ve used the same approach with other groups: Fife Young Carers, The Young People’s Collaborative (V&A Dundee), Youth Action Group (The McManus Dundee, Museum and Art Gallery ), Young Inspector Volunteers (Care Inspectorate), 16+ Programme (Angus Council).
A couple of days of training isn’t always sufficient – this approach results in a completed final product and ongoing support and learning throughout the process with the participants presenting their own vision – not having it done for them.
If you think this could work for your project please get in touch.
