Consultation: Paisley Youth Arts Festival

The Paisley Youth Arts Festival idea is one of those magical community driven initiatives that brings together passionate actors and young minds to create one of the most genuine experiences and maybe, shape some of their future life decisions. We want to bring this atmosphere to life: a happy end of summer festival, jumping about, sitting in cafes, playing music and games, acting, taking part in workshops and seeing people fall in love with all things Paisley.

An independent arts consultation is taking place at
PACE Youth Theatre, on Monday 18 February 2019 at 6-8.30pm
The Wynd Centre, School Wynd Paisley PA1

The consultation will be to discuss a new YOUTH ARTS FESTIVAL for Paisley to take place mid-late September 2019. The festival is open to young people, under the age of 25, and will take place at various venues throughout Paisley. The programme will include: gaming, indoor activity and outdoor activity; workshops, pop-up events, theatre, music, film and dance.

The festival is being supported by arts leaders from:

• PACE Youth Theatre
• Erskine Music & Media Studios
• Brick Lane Studios
• Create Paisley
• Loud and Proud
• Renfrewshire Leisure
• Outspoken Arts Scotland

We are looking for collaborators, acts, youth workers, potential sponsors and partner organisations to take part in the event.

All local organisations and interested individuals are invited to attend.

We look forward to seeing you there!

Refreshments will be served. 6-6.30pm

Note: Certified and accredited youth leaders from partner organisations will co-host the event.
Parents are welcome to attend as chaperones if they wish.
Facilities for the disabled are provided.

Civil Disobedience Presents Jock Tamson’s Bairns

 You go to a club to watch some drag. The music is great. The performances are on point. The booze is flowing freely and the room is filled with laughter.  Someone says something stupid. Possibly homophobic. Possibly sexist. Do you challenge them?

Part drag, part cabaret and part theatre, Jock Tamson’s Bairns is an immersive show where the audience is transported to an afterhours gay bar and invited to speak their mind. No topic is taboo, but a respect for your fellow humans is compulsory.

Part of LGBT+ History Month

 Suitable for ages 12+
