Cashback:Creative Identities - Expressions of Interest ( 18/05/2009 )

Scottish Screen seeks expressions of interest for the evaluation of the CashBack For Communities Creative Identities programme of arts and media activities for young people, which will take place during 2009-10.

CashBack For Communities is a new programme of young people's activity funded from assets seized through the Proceeds Of Crime Act 2002. Its main objective is to provide a wide range of positive activities for young people between the ages of 10 to 19 across Scotland. It aims to make a visible difference in local areas by increasing sports and arts opportunities for young people.

Scottish Screen is leading and managing the development and delivery of Creative Identities, an 18-month pilot programme of creative learning activities for young people with CashBack For Communities investment of £1.2 million, in partnership with the Scottish Arts Council. Independent evaluation of the programme will play an important role in its further development.

The primary purposes of Creative Identities activities will be to enable young people to communicate using arts and moving image media (film, video & games) through workshops, mentoring, presentations, exhibitions, showcasing and archiving online, and to promote positive images of young people.
