The Young Arts Leaders programme establishes a new pathway for Scotland’s young theatre makers to realise and harness their potential as art leaders and producers within their own communities.
The Young Arts Leaders programme is for young people aged 16-25. Throughout the 12 month programme the Young Arts Leaders will develop leadership and entrepreneurial skills to produce their own innovative engagement projects.
Each participant will be mentored by leading Scottish artists and theatre professionals and attend three intensive Leadership Skills weekends.
During the programme participants will gain a Gold Arts Award (SCQF Level 6/7, 35 UCAS points) with units in ‘personal arts development’ and ‘arts projects leadership’.
