Celebrate ART

Celebrate ART is an exciting collaborative project developed by four partner organisations for the Year of Young People 2018 to showcase and celebrate the talent and creativity of young people in and through the visual arts.

Through Celebrate ART young people will develop visual arts projects and act as artists, curators, educators, creative participants and evaluators. Resulting art work will be shown in a series of high-profile exhibition/ showcase/ presentations during 2018 across several venues including Tramway in Glasgow and The Fruitmarket Gallery in Edinburgh. The partners are:

  • Engage Scotland, the National Association for Gallery Education
  • The Fruitmarket Gallery, Edinburgh
  • The John Byrne Award
  • Tramway, Glasgow
  • Templar Arts & Leisure Centre, Tarbert, Argyll.

The partner organisations bring existing expertise in working and engaging with young people in different ways and have decided to work together to:

  • develop and share good practice in working with young people
  • try out and share new approaches
  • cultivate new links across Scotland

The young people who participate in this project will of course be partners too.

Project Partner Updates

The young people working at The Fruitmarket Gallery, with artist Louise Fraser, will showcase their work on 16 & 17 June, with the young people developing work at Tramway, with artist Ruth Barker, following suit on 7 July. We’ll bring you lots more information about these events and others as they develop.

The John Byrne Award will be working with all the artists and young people involved to create short films to document the project.

Our newest partner, Templar Arts & Leisure Centre, based in Tarbert, Argyll, have some exciting plans up their sleeve and have a super website with great documentation from previous projects.
