On 6th February (National Libraries Day) Creative Apprentices and people aged 13 – 25 from the #artcore project will showcase music, spoken word, zines, radio plays, music production demos and loads more.
There will be a young musician and artist in residence plus some music performances from bands.
The event starts at 12.30pm with workshops and will go on until 4.30pm. This is going to be really special, so if you’re going to be in town that day make sure you pop in to see it for yourself.
Over the next couple of weeks the #artcore Creative Apprentices will be telling us a bit more about their plans, together with details of how you can get involved.
This is just the latest project in our partnership with #artcore. So far we have started a Friday afternoon animation studio, formed 3 new creative writing collectives, helped young writers design and publish their own work and enabled young people around the city in discovering new, creative ways of using technology to build and design their own images, worlds and games.
In the year of Innovation, Architecture and Design we aim encourage young people to discover the huge variety of services available from Edinburgh Libraries: from accessing the global press using PressReader, to discovering Lego Mindstorms, building synth kits with our Digital Toyboxes and making animated films through our Rotoscope Animation club.
