The main reason for sending you this short letter is to say a huge Thank You to you all for not just making me very proud to promote the music and musicians of Scotland, which I am privileged to do all around the world, but to make me equally proud to be part of such a vibrant music scene within Scotland within which organisations such as Fèis Rois play such an important role, especially for young people.
Ian Smith, Portfolio Manager for Music and IP at Creative Scotland referring to a group of Fèis Rois musicians who performed at Cambridge Folk Festival

Highland Youth Arts Hub

Do you want to be Creative in your Community? Find out about funding opportunities.

Fèis Rois is delighted to be leading on the delivery of an exciting new Youth Arts Hub for the Highlands. The Highland Youth Arts Hub is one of nine hubs being set up across the country as part of the National Youth Arts Strategy, Time to Shine.

The Highland Youth Arts Hub is working to the ambitious National Youth Arts Strategy which centres around three key themes:

  • creating and sustaining engagement
  • nurturing potential and talent
  • developing infrastructure and support

In the Highlands, 12 youth and arts organisations are working in partnership to develop this exciting new initiative. The partners are: Aros / Skye Dance, Eden Court, Fèisean nan Gàidheal, Fèis Rois, Highland Council, Highland Print Studio, High Life Highland, Moniack Mhòr, Plan B, Room 13, University of the Highlands & Islands and Youth Highland.

As the Hub develops, we look forward to engaging many more partners throughout the Highlands.

The Highland Youth Arts Hub aims to increase access to youth arts activities across the region and across a range of art forms including dance, digital art, drama, film, literature, music and visual art. We will be working together to offer more cross art form activities and to address issues like accessibility and participation.

The Hub will nurture and celebrate ambition, enthusiasm and talent in young people by improving the regional infrastructure and developing a new youth arts strategy for the area called Highland’s Time to Shine.

Young people will be central to the development of the Hub. They will steer the direction of the work and make key decisions as the project will be led by a new Highland Youth Arts Forum.

The Hub is currently planning creative projects that will kick off in January 2015 whilst a new Creative Careers weekend and Annual Youth Arts Festival are in the pipeline for later next year – stay tuned and keep an ear out for what’s going on in your area! Keep up to date with the National Time to Shine programme by following @TTSYoutharts on Twitter.

If you would like more information on the Hub please contact Stacey, the Highland Youth Arts Hub Project Manager.

If you are interested in becoming involved with the Hub or any of its projects, or would simply like to express a want and/or need for creative provision in your area, please contact Stacey on the e-mail above. If, however, you’d feel more comfortable speaking with one of the Youth Arts Forum representatives please contact Katie
