The Association and Impact Arts were delighted to host an exhibition in the Barrhead Museum in early November 2014 to celebrate the success of the first Creative Pathways programme. Working with 8 local young people, the Museum hosted a celebration of the project by showing off the skills and products made by the young people. The audience was presented with a short film animation created by several of the boys and also a sale by auction of products created during the 18 week training programme. All 8 young people were presented with a certificate from Councillor Tommy Reilly, who is a Barrhead HA Board member, a local Barrhead councillor and a staff member at West College Scotland. The project was delivered from the Skills Academy in Robertson Street, Barrhead where Tommy currently oversees a Construction Academy and Men’s Shed.
The Creative Pathways project has now started its second programme of 18 weeks so any young person aged 16-25 years old should contact the Association or Impact Arts direct if they would like to participate. Thanks goes to East Renfrewshire Council’s Youth Services team for allowing us to use the Barrhead Museum for this celebration.
