That’s our set of Spring workshops wrapped up! Thanks to everyone that took part and learnt a new skill in the process. It’s so encouraging to see so many young people interested in the arts and we’re so glad that we can give them the opportunity to test their skills and broaden their horizons!

Caithness Young Creatives is a club for young people, led by young people. CYC provide a regular programme of workshops led by artists and creative practitioners giving young people a chance to have a go or develop skills in a variety of creative subjects.
The Caithness Young Creatives worked with Rosanna Irvine as part of the Manifestos in Times of Crisis participatory art project. This is the Manifesto that they came up with for the Caithness Young Creatives.

A filmmaking workshop for young creators held at Lyth Arts Centre.
In this workshop, Regina helped the CYC to hone their skills on fiction film directing, sound recording and editing footage. They explored a script and learned how to work with actors. They also learned why sound recording is so important and how the editing connects it all.

The CYC also worked on some films that were included as part of the projections at the Northern Lights Festival. The four films and animations were shown in the Salt Cellars at Wick Harbour.
