Highland Youth Arts Hub
The Highland Youth Arts Hub was set up in 2014 to support the National Youth Arts Strategy, Time to Shine. The project aimed to increase access to youth arts activities for those aged 0-25 across the region and across a range of art forms including dance, digital art, drama, film, literature, music and visual art.
Between 2014 and 2016 the HYAH partnership delivered 12 multi-art form pilot projects, multiple CPD sessions for the wider youth arts sector and four showcase events, engaging 5,765 young people in over 30,000 hours of activity and creating over 200 freelance positions, 47% of which were for young artists aged 25 or under.
In 2017 the HYAH published a 10 year Youth Arts Strategy with five core aims; access, collaboration, innovation, place and sustainability. Fèis Rois will continue to work with the consortium of thirteen youth and arts organisations to implement this strategy for the long term.
I’m delighted to have participated in the Highland Youth Arts Hub. Since participating in Kin, it has opened a lot of doors for me, both with opportunities to develop and improve skills and meeting great people.Kin musician
