We hope you’ve all had a great summer! We have some exciting news to share with you about the future of Tha Seo Math Dhuibh – Good for You.
In our first year, we ran a total of 170 participatory arts-based workshops, events and screenings throughout Skye and Lochalsh. The main aim of the work was to give people access to arts activities, particularly those who had limited or no access to the arts previously.
2,150 people took part in the activities.
At the end of project gathering, in June, we spoke to people between the ages of 15-94 and gathered feedback. We found that:-
88% of participants tried arts activities that were new to them
85% of participants are more likely to come to the Aros Centre than they were before the project began
69% of participants feel more confident going to events and concerts in the community
92% said they have had the chance to meet new people
73% would like to try new activities in the future
We are delighted that people have benefitted so greatly from the work. We would like to keep building on this, giving more people an opportunity to take part in arts activities.
