Culture and Connection: How can Children and Young People shape their Creative Future?

,

Research output: Book/ReportCommissioned report

Abstract

Creative Scotland and Young Scot have launched a new report examining how young people across Scotland can shape their creative future.

Culture and Connection is based on findings from the National Youth Arts Advisory Group which first met in June 2017, and a national survey of young people, conducted by Young Scot, which saw 617 young people take part.

The report made a series of recommendations, in three areas, including:

Community participation
The NYAAG should work with local arts sectors to improve networks between young artists and further engage with local youth arts communities, allowing the sharing of expertise and creating a dialogue between the national youth arts sector, local youth arts providers and children and young people participating in the arts.

Recognition
For the NYAAG to develop and deliver programme of skill-sharing through knowledge partnerships; enhancing organisations’ approach to empowerment and participation, highlighting and sharing best practice.

Pathways for growth
All children and young people should be given the opportunity to develop their creative capacity through education. The most important areas to look for in arts opportunities, according to young people are; the quality of the opportunity, its affordability and the ease of which you can access opportunities.
