What we make will be up to you. A show? A giant structure? A gig? A film? A gallery?

It’s all about your ideas, stories and opinions.

Oh, and it’s free.

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.
