Arts development

The Arts Development Section develops a variety of activities and projects to make the arts more accessible to the local community.

We do this through providing everything from courses, projects, workshops and master classes as well as one-off activities and events, such as theme days, summer schools, concerts and festivals including the 'Young at Heart Festival' every March and the annual 'Cool Down for Summer' programme.

Our wide ranging programme of arts courses and classes is designed to accommodate all needs, ages and abilities and runs in three terms enrolling in January, April and September each year. The Arts Development Team regularly work with national arts companies to provide outreach programmes to support the events and performances within the venues. Further information is available in our arts development brochure and East Kilbride Arts Centre courses and classes brochure, and in the ACE children's activities programmes.

For a look at some of last year's Arts Development Projects why not watch our latest video.

We work with local organisations and groups on community-based projects providing advice and support for groups with things such as training, constituting a voluntary arts group, how to access funding and how to develop projects.

The Arts Development team has a great success rate in attracting external funding and is currently working with The Youth Music Initiative, Heritage Lottery Fund and The Princes Foundation for Children and the Arts.
