Summary of Project

Gallery 37 CashBack to the Future will deliver a 4-week full time programme of activities, led by inspirational artists which are fun and appealing to young people, in a structured programme that supports participants to progress positively, including re-engagement with school. The 4 week programme is followed by 36 weeks of aftercare for each young person participating. Gallery 37 seeks to unleash the creative talent of young people in local areas of deprivation through arts and creativity engagement, including use of animation, performance, music and visual arts. The design of the programme ensures that young people will develop a range of soft skills including communication, team working, leadership and decision making as part of each creative activity.

The programme will identify young people (14-19 years) at risk of unemployment, not engaging in education or training and/or being excluded from school, or at risk of being involved in antisocial behaviour. Through early engagement, using an early intervention and prevention approach, this provides the opportunity for young people to break the cycle of deprivation and enables them to achieve their full potential. The aftercare process will provide every young person with support and progression planning along with an individual support plan.

The programme will delivered during school holiday periods.
