Ensemble Explore and Bronze Summer Workshops are tailor-made arts workshops for young people in P5-7 (Explore) and S1 upwards (Bronze)

These four-day sessions run from 10 am – 4 pm and weather permitting will work in an outdoor space nearby.  During this time participants will work with our Community Learning Officer Jack Stancliffe to work towards their Awards Award.

 

Bronze:

Dates: August 7TH-10TH

Time: 10am-4pm

Participants will work together to respond to a challenge set at the start of the project week, which may come in the form of a question to answer, problem to resolve, or a task to put on an event within a community space within Ardrossan.

The project will use different arts forms as drama, performance, drawing, film, photography as ways to do this. Allowing those partaking to work with our community creative learning officer to develop a broad range of creative skills and creative ways of thinking over the duration of the four days.

The project will take place across different locations and sites within the area such as the Beach, Ardrossan Castle, Carparks, Office buildings and local theatre venues to challenge young people to think about the ways such spaces may be used and how they may connect to the challenge set.

Participants will also work to gain a “Bronze” Arts award qualification which will also give them space to reflect, write about and document their journey across the four days.  The project will conclude with a short sharing of everything created over the four days, as well as a provisional arts award celebratory event.

If you’re up for the challenge then we’d love to have you involved!
