Youth Arts Hubs

National Festival of Youth Theatre 2013

About the Programme

On 8 November 2013 the Cabinet Secretary, Fiona Hyslop, launched Time to Shine - Scotland's first National Youth Arts Strategy. This was an ambitious strategy centred around the three key themes of creating and sustaining engagement; nurturing potential and talent; and developing infrastructure and support. The Strategy set out a vision and key recommendations to enable Scotland’s children and young people to flourish and achieve, in and through the arts and creativity.

This fund supported the development of a number of Hubs to explore innovative models of youth arts provision across a range of art forms. The £3.5million Youth Arts Hub Development Fund supported partnerships between national and regional youth arts and youth service providers, to deliver youth arts provision across a range of art forms.

This fund is now closed
