What is Create18?
As part of the Year of Young People 2018, an opportunity has arisen for Young Scot to work in partnership with EventScotland to establish a new, exciting fund. Create18 is open to groups of young people from across Scotland aged 8-26 who can apply to receive funding for events they would like to run in the Year of Young People 2018.
Create18 events could be anything from film festivals, gigs, theatre and dance performances, to art exhibitions, sports competitions, fashion shows and nature trails – we can’t wait to hear your ideas!
Create18 is a unique opportunity to create your own special events in your community which will sit alongside a programme of major ‘signature’ events with young people at the very heart of them!
Remember – The Year of Young People 2018 is a once in a lifetime experience as no other country has ever dedicated an entire year to young people!
