A Northwest England-based non-profit digital arts organisa
tion called Folly has started a programme called Art Locates Me, a project to produce and distribute work made by young people in Cumbria, UK, as part of their ArtCast series. It aims to increase the opportunities for young people to participate in digital arts and contribute to their personal and social development along the way, as well as to aid the development of Cumbria as a whole. The project will pair collaborating artists with young people to impart skills ranging from filmmaking and photography to music production and graphic design.
I think this is an important kind of project, because it teaches young
people exactly the kind of skills they want to learn in this digital age. In fact, these are some of the skills that could well change the image of volunteering from being boring to cool and ‘with it’.
