Wiltshire Youth Arts Partnership is the Youth Arts Partnership organisation for Wiltshire Council. Its values are to work in partnership with individuals and organisations that have a shared ambition. We strive to support new ways of working and to improve the sustainability of youth arts in Wiltshire. We look for ways to network, encourage best practice and advocate for others. WYAP strives to achieve this by delivering its aims through partnerships which are identified in response to local and national need.

 

WYAP Highlights

Hello!

My name is Amy Scott and I am working as a Projects Intern for WYAP and Wiltshire Music Centre through the Creative Employment Programme. The Creative Employment Programme is a £15m fund to support the creation of traineeships, formal apprenticeship and paid internship opportunities in England for young unemployed people aged 16-24 wishing to pursue a career in the arts and cultural sector. To find out more visit The Creative Employment Programme website.


WYAP is currently researching and developing ideas for a MusicMatters project to commemorate World War One. If you would like further information about this project please get in touch!


Who's Asking?

In February 2014 young people from the Trowbridge Youth Advisory Group (YAG) launched “The Random Story Generator" at the Bandstand in Trowbridge Park. WYAP have commissioned this project with Davis & Jones as part of their Arts Council funded project - Youth Arts on Target. 

Young people out and about on the streets were asked to share their stories which were  transcribed on to clothes that the artists were wearing, immediately creating a public conversation. A total of 347,130 individual stories evolved which presented a quirky and illuminating tale of being a young person in Trowbridge.
