SB Connect Winter 2016

Performing Arts

Scotland’s largest national training and networking conference for the youth performing arts sector was staged at the Eastgate Theatre in Peebles recently.

Promote YT’s ‘Skill Up’ event was an exciting opportunity for anyone involved in performing arts with young people.

More than 100 artists, youth theatre practitioners, teachers and youth workers from across the country were joined by delegates from as far afield as Germany and Denmark to share work, examine good practice and engage in a broad range of development opportunities including group workshops and a discussion on funding.

Scottish Borders Council supported 35 funded places for practitioners, teachers, youth arts workers and students who are on the frontline delivering performing arts to young people in the Borders.
