Partnerships between the culture and creative sectors, youth organisations and youth workers

Nine Youth Arts Hubs were established following Time to Shine: Scotland's Youth Arts Strategy for ages 0-25. These hubs involve partnerships between national and regional youth arts and youth service providers working together to enable young people across Scotland to participate in the arts and explore and develop their creative potential. Initial funding for the development of the Youth Arts Hubs was provided by Creative Scotland.

Additionally, Screen Scotland, a consortium comprising Scotland's cultural cinemas and film festivals, works with schools, cinemas, youth organisations and other partners to engage young people with film and the moving image through a range of projects.

Finally, Is this the best it can be?, a toolkit developed by Artsworks Scotland, is aimed at practitioners delivering arts and creative learning through collaborative projects and programmes. The toolkit encompasses a set of downloadable tools which support partners to improve and enhance their working.
