Developing creativity across the Highlands

About HYAH

The Highland Youth Arts Hub was one of nine hubs set up across the country as part of the National Youth Arts Strategy, Time to Shine. Supported by Creative Scotland, Time to Shine centres around three key themes:

  • Participation: creating and sustaining engagement
  • Progression: nurturing potential and talent
  • Provision: developing infrastructure and support

The Highland Youth Arts Hub aims to increase access to youth arts activities across the region and across a range of art forms including dance, digital art, drama, film, literature, music and visual art.  We do this through:

  • Making connections between young people, organisations & practitioners
  • Supporting a regional youth forum who’s role is to help inform the direction of the HYAH & offer creative guidance
  • Offering schemes which allow young people to take control of their own arts development (check out our Creative in Your Community, GoSeeShare & CPD opportunities!)
  • Facilitating partnership & collaboration
