Participatory Arts Short Course

The PASC programme is tailored to equip learners with the relevant skills, knowledge and understanding required to work collaboratively and proficiently within a range of participatory settings, using the arts as a catalyst for positive social change.

The course is suited to young people aged 16-24 hoping to develop their practice and apply their arts specialism in areas including, but not limited to, communities, criminal justice, education, health, social care and youth work.

Learn how to create accessible and engaging workshops, evaluation technique, the fundamentals of fundraising and budgeting, and the health benefits of participatory arts. On completion of all modules, students will receive a PASC certificate from the Board of Glasgow Connected Arts Network, stipulating the skills and development achieved.

PASC classes will be provided free of charge thanks to the National Lottery Young Start Fund.

The next PASC sessions will be an intensive weekend course on 16th and 17th March 2024. The course will take place at The Boardwalk, 105 Brunswick St, Glasgow G1 1TF. Materials and snacks will be provided.
