Participants are required from the Highland Council region to take part in a new project, The Art of the Future World.

The Highland Youth Arts Hub (HYAH) has partnered with the National Galleries for Scotland (NGS) as part of their new outreach project and are currently looking for five participants aged 17-22 to take part in it.

The Art of the Future World aims to link communities throughout Scotland in a national conversations about their futures. Groups will create their own artworks in response to the ‘Project Box’ which will include materials such as: a reproduction of a NGS contemporary artwork (from the NOW exhibition at Modern 1), sculptural materials, buzzwords and written content. The NGS aim to have an exhibition at the National Galleries in early 2018 as a final outcome of the project. This may be in digital format online.

HYAH participants should have an interest in one or more of the following art forms: dance, drama, film, literature, music, visual art and must be available on the following dates:

- Thursday 10th August: An initial project meeting and afternoon exploring the ‘Project Box’. This will take place in Inverness.

- Thursday 14th September: A trip to Edinburgh to see the NOW exhibition at National Galleries Scotland.

Participants will be asked to explore the concept of the future both as a group and individually. You should be prepared to create group and individual responses to the ‘Project Box’ and be willing to share these with other groups taking part across Scotland.
