Sessions will run weekly at Moat Brae when it is safe to do so.
The JMB Creatives is an exciting initiative designed to celebrate the amazing talent of young people in Dumfries & Galloway.
What Will You Be Doing?
We will present a range of specific projects to you and we really want to find out what you think and hear your views and ideas. Sometimes we will just talk, other times we may ask you to help us test some designs and activities that could end up in the National Centre for Children’s Literature and Storytelling or the Neverland Discovery Garden. You can volunteer and help organise events. We will be offering volunteering opportunities which you can link with Duke of Edinburgh, Saltire or The Arts Award.
Why Do We Need You?
When Moat Brae opens in Spring 2019 it will be a place for young people, we need your help us test our ideas and make sure Moat Brae becomes a vibrant part of Dumfries and a major visitor attraction for visitors from all over the world.
“What is so nice about Moat Brae is the fact that our ideas were not only listened to, but put into action and helped to be developed further. I would recommend any young creative in Dumfriesshire to get involved, as it is a great way to boost creativity and develop creative skills. ” Jessica Lee (JMB Creative)
Who Can Join?
Anyone aged 26 and under can apply. We don’t expect you to have any experience as the meetings will be led by our creative team. You don’t even need a special interest in reading… but if you want to help make your town special, like a challenge and want to get involved in something fun and exciting that can make a difference to Dumfries, this could be a great opportunity for you.
What Do You Get Out Of It?
This kind of opportunity is great for your CV or Personal Statement. You can gain valuable experience in developing ideas and working in teams in a fun and friendly environment. It’s a great way to improve your practical and organisational skills, to network and learn how good ideas can be turned into practice and how major projects are planned and carried out.
If this could be you please get in touch. This voluntary, advisory role is open to anyone aged 26 and under but you do need to apply as numbers are limited.
