Kibble welcomed young people from the Listen2Us Project in Dumfries, and Who Cares? Scotland as they put their collective heads together to craft some amazing sculptures. The organisations met at the recent ‘Who Cares? Scotland Time to [act]: Care Can Be Phenomenal’ event and it became clear there was an abundance of artistic talent that needed to be explored further.
Kibble’s Arts Development Officer Gavin Sinclair explained: “When I met the Listen2Us Project group it was obvious that they were keen to be involved in the Care 2 Create event. We quickly organised a weekend class and it was a real success. It just shows what can be achieved when we just go for it. Well done to everyone involved.”
Young people spent the morning designing huge sculptures on the theme of ‘inspirations’. Finished sculptures included a star, a hot air balloon and even Sponge Bob! The impressive artwork will be displayed at the Care 2 Create event on the 18th of June at BAad in Glasgow. The group have also put their literacy ingenuity to the test and penned poems for the forthcoming event.
Care 2 Create is delivered in collaboration with Kibble, Who Cares? Scotland and various community partnerships. It has helped over 50 young people to learn new skills, improve their confidence, engage in the arts and widen achievement. The Care 2 Create event is free and will celebrate care experienced young people coming together through the creative arts. The evening will showcase a diverse range of artistic talent and will include textiles, jewellery, painting, sculptures, murals and other visual arts mediums, live DJ sets, animation installations, free running, drumming and musical performances.
