Traces: a graffiti art and dance project for young people aged 12–18

If you’re 12-18 years old, here’s your chance to get involved in a graffiti art and dance project that will become a short film! This summer, we’re looking for a curious group of young people who want to learn graffiti art and dance skills and combine these to create an exciting urban art piece. No experience is needed, just bring your creativity, energy and fun. You’ll have a brilliant time making a short film and you’ll get to work with professional choreographer Gail Sneddon and graffiti artist Duncan Wilson. 

Made in partnership with Dance North Scotland, with support from Findhorn Bay Arts Youth Arts Fund, Tesco Bags of Help and Moray Council. 

Where: TBC in the Forres/ Elgin Area
Transport will be provided from Forres and Elgin.
