Pier to Pier
Mon, 10 Apr 2017, 08:15 – Wed, 12 Apr 2017, 17:40 BST
We invite a small group of young people (aged 12+) from Cove & Kilcreggan to take part in Pier to Pier, an Argyll & Bute wide arts event that will involve them joining other young people from Dunoon and Bute to take part in three different arts workshops in three different locations on three consecutive days during the Easter holidays.
The workshops will take place in Dunoon, Cove Park and Rothesay Pavilion and provide opportunities for people to engage in, explore and develop their creativity. Goings on at Cove Park can appear very distant to those at Dunnon Burgh Hall which in turn is different again from Rothesay Pavilion. And so on.
Yet what connects these three excellent arts venues in our region is the Clyde Firth. Which also presents geographical and time issues. Pier to Pier faces these challenges head on and will connect through creativity young people across the water. Taking as its starting point the historical piers of Kilcreggan, Dunoon and Rothesay, peers from these three locations will travel to create, experiment and importantly collaborate, whether en route to or at their destination.
Monday 10 April, Dunoon
We will join other young people as part of Dunoon Burgh Hall's arts programme to do an Andy Warhol inspired workshop (inspired by the exhibition of his work) with the artist Sandi Kiehlmann.
Tuesday 11 April, Cove Park
Working with artist Alex McEwan, we will be joined at Cove Park by young people from Dunoon and Rothesay to collectively create a 3D art work inspired by our surroundings.
Wednesday 12 April, Rothesay Pavilion
We will join other young people at the soon to be refurbished Rothesay Pavilion to work with Erskine Music and Media on a colour bombing filming project.
Places are free and limited to 6 for young people from Cove & Kilcreggan. All lunch and travel costs will be covered. Parents are required to drop their children off and collect them from Kilcreggan Pier or Cove Park each day as per the above programme of activity and the to be confirmed schedule.
Please note the times listed here are a guide only; a full schedule for each day, with details of all public transport, will be confirmed nearer the time.
