TTSDigital : #DigitalConnections
This summer Youth Highland will work in partnership with FLING! Film Festival and DUFI-Art to carry out a fun interactive Arts Project with young people from Easter Ross. The project will work with a group of young people from Highlands who will collate and celebrate the creativity of young people using digital media.
As part of the project we will be asking young people from all over the Highlands to submit photographs that symbolise #youthhighlandsummer If you have a photograph that you want to share as part of the project please share it on Twitter with the hashtags #youthhighlandsummer #digitalconnections
Get in touch at firstname.lastname@example.org or via our Twitter or Facebook accounts if you want to be a part of the project. You may want to share short films, animations, photographs, song, sound, creative writing ... all of this (and more - let your imagination go WILD) can be included in the project. Use #digitalconnections to share your creativity

Making a mark in Seaboard villages
New member club Balintore Playscheme benefitted from creative activities provided by Youth Highland this summer. Artist Jacquie Steele and dancer Julia McGhee ran activities during the summer. Balintore leader Paige said 'It was great to get the kids to do something different, they really enjoyed working with professional artists - the adults all learnt new things too'.
