YOUTH HIGHLAND - WHERE'S YOUR HEAD AT
A Creative Scotland Project with Youth Highland mentoring two artists, Verity Nichols and William Elliott to create a film and sound design installed at locations in the Highlands. Merkinch, Balintore, Thurso and Alness with youth voice at it's core.
'Funded by the Scottish Government’s Youth Arts Fund through Creative Scotland with support from Youth Music Initiative and Time to Shine, young people have been supported to use creative processes to collect and amplify the voices of young people to ensure they are seen and heard. This work has resulted in a film and sound projection piece which will be showcased in 4 site specific locations in communities across the region between Thurs 10th and Sunday 13thth February. The piece expresses young peoples reflections about their experience of living and growing up in Highland, the impact of the pandemic on their lives and the changes they want to see and be a part of in the future.'
