Young Trainee Artists have been working with Youth Highland and professional artists to use creative processes to collect and amplify the voices of young people to ensure they are seen and heard. 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. This work has resulted in a film and sound projection piece which was showcased in 4 site specific locations - Balintore, Inverness, Thurso and Alness, between Thurs 10th and Sunday 13thth February 2022. The project is funded by the Scottish Government’s Youth Arts Fund through Creative Scotland with support from Youth Music Initiative and Time to Shine. The Youth Arts Fund ensures creative opportunities for children and young people continue to exist across Scotland despite the COVID-19 pandemic.
