Community Collaborations:

Tiree and Oban Sounds Design Workshops

WACI and sound lecturer, Clare Hibbard, from the RCS Production Technology and Management (PTM) department have been out and about in Argyll delivering an introduction to sound design workshops for students in Oban and Tiree High Schools. It was a great opportunity to get out and meet teachers and students in the West Coast communities to talk about WACI, RCS and all things sound production. Clare delivered a fascinating workshop on how industry professionals approach designing sound for theatre and film and certainly got the students thinking about pathways and careers in production.

 Community and Applied Arts Practice 

Friday 7 June, 10 – 3:30pm at The Boardwalk, Glasgow G1 1TF

Are you aged 16 – 25 and want to use your creativity to ask questions, share stories and make change? Do you think the arts can change people’s minds, opinions and lives? Are you interested in building leadership and facilitation skills? If the answer is yes, come along to find out more about Community and Applied Arts Practice at our Fair Access Expo.

At this exciting all-day event, we’re inviting you to join practical sessions with experienced community artists to:

  • Make Theatre
  • Get Moving
  • Make Music
  • Tell a Story

They’ll share their skills and show you how they work creatively with a range of communities. Come and learn about the stories that matter.

What is Community Arts Practice? 

It’s a springboard to careers in teaching, directing, performance making, youth work, community music, arts in health and wellbeing, community education, play work, arts funding, creative learning in arts and cultural organisations and so much more.
