Broomy’s Bairns – Year of Young People 2018

We’re so excited to be back in 2018 for our Broomy’s Bairns workshop!  The kids had a great time this week looking at what it means to be a young person today, helping to celebrate the Year of Young People 2018.

Scotland’s first ever Year of Young People is happening in 2018.  It aims to inspire all ages through its young people (8-26) by celebrating their achievements, valuing their contributions to communities and creating new opportunities for them to shine on a local and global stage.  The Year of Young People 2018 will offer even more opportunities for both locals and visitors to enjoy a trip to, and around Scotland.  From adrenaline filled adventure breaks and breath-taking road trips, to a range of exciting events and festivals, Scotland offers endless things to see and do during the celebratory year.

We started this weeks workshops by trying to get the kids to think about differences between their lives in 2018 today, and their parents lives when they were growing up, as well as their own interests and hobbies and what makes them so uniquely 21st Century.  This led to a lot of discussion about technology and the impact it has had on young peoples lives today.  The children were aware that most of them were up to date – more so than past generations – with current affairs thanks to social media, as well as how information is literally at their fingers tips.

The Broomy’s Bairns Art Classes are every Wednesday at the Broomhill Art Flat, with the first session starting at 3.30pm, until 4.30pm, then the next session starting at 4.40pm, and finished up at 5.30pm.
