Hamiltonhill Claypits seek new Digital Youth Artist in Residence

The Digital Youth Artist in Residence (DYAIR) project, hosted by the Hamilton Claypits Local Nature Reserve, aims to broaden our engagement with youth and digital audiences. This project is supported by Heritage Lottery Funding, which also enabled us to purchase digital equipment to engage community members – tablets, cameras and webcams. This equipment will form an essential part of involving our community in creative activities around wildlife watching, recording and learning, amongst other activities.

Submissions are open to artists with demonstrable digital skills, between the ages of 18 to 26 who either live in Glasgow or have a strong relationship with the city. Experience undertaking artistic projects with a community focus is also desirable.
As DYAIR, you will help develop, run and curate activities particularly focused on youth and digital engagement. As such, your application should focus on demonstrating your artistic practice and skills, showing us why you are suitable for this role, and telling us a bit about how you would deliver the role outputs.
