Bridge 2 Creative
Our Bridge 2 Creative (B2C) Programme is funded by Creative Communities led by Inspiring Scotland to offer our young people at Better Lives Partnership a way to explore and develop their creative practices across our sites in Dumfries, Castle Douglas and Stranraer.
We offer weekly dedicated B2C Sessions as well as the opportunity for our young people to engage in creative practice as an individual task. We work with local professional artists in each of our locations to offer our young people a person-centred approach to developing their creative practices as well as offering whole group sessions for all our young people to explore their creativity and enjoy the process of creating art.
We have partnered with Paragon Music to deliver sessions across all three sites which will provide opportunities for our young people to explore music.
Young people who are on our Bridge 2 Business Programme in Castle Douglas will also be able to benefit from integrating the creative programmes and sessions with professional artists to help develop their own work for their business.
We will have Art Exhibitions at all our sites to showcase the work of our young people to their families and the wider community.
Access All Art Funding
Several young people in Stranraer have been successful in their funding applications to the Access All Arts fund, administered by Children in Scotland. These awards will enable them to further their creative skills through mentoring and the purchase of art materials.
