Young Quines

Youth Theatre in Fife

In response to the impact that Covid-19 has had on communities and the creative sector, Young Quines will see the creation of 4 Creative Hubs across Fife. The Hubs will provide free-to-access youth theatre for young women aged 14-21 years old and will put young women’s voices at the heart of the work by offering a flexible programme that will be co-designed with the participants.

There will be opportunities throughout the year for the Hubs to work together, see theatre and collaborate with other artists.

Young Quines is Stellar Quines project within the national programme called Culture Collective, coordinated by Creative Scotland. As part of their Covid response, the Scottish Government have made a £6M investment into the Culture Collective programme, to place creative practitioners in communities in 26 projects around Scotland.

Large numbers of creative freelancers have lost their income because of the Covid pandemic and people in communities are also experiencing real difficulties. The basic principle of Culture Collective is simple – to pay creatives to work with communities.
