A creative campaign for change

Inspired by the real life Glasgow Girls and our forthcoming show based on their campaign, #TAKE A STAND is a new National Theatre of Scotland project, inviting groups of young people to take action, to inspire others and to make a positive difference to society.

In partnership with the Citizens Theatre and the Scottish Youth Parliament, and with sponsorship from ScottishPower, we’ll be offering five project support packages to groups  of young people aged 13 – 15, living in Glasgow, who can convince us of their passion for a cause and their ability to champion that cause in the most exciting, creative and innovative ways.

Here’s what we’re inviting groups to apply for:

>  a grant of £500 for your project (you might decide to supplement this through fundraising – we can give you advice on this)

>  a professional artist as your Creative Partner – you get 10 days of their time

>  Creative Campaigning training from the Scottish Youth Parliament

>  support and advice from the National Theatre of Scotland

How to apply:
To help groups make the strongest possible application, we’re offering a Consultation Session with the National Theatre of Scotland, the Real Glasgow Girls Team and Members of the Scottish Youth Parliament.  They’ll give you advice on how to make your application as strong as possible, and will answer any questions you might have about the project.

You don’t have to come to one of these sessions, but we recommend it.

Book your Consultation Session:

Get in touch with Philippa Tomlin, Creative Learning Coordinator, as soon as possible:  philippa.tomlin@nationaltheatrescotland.com or phone 0141 227 9232.

Application deadline:  Friday 27th July 2012
