At Gig-Arts, we help young disadvantaged artists and musicians of all abilities to gain enterprise skills, perform live on stage and volunteer in their local community. Our focus is on helping young people to use their creative talent to a earn a living.
We've found that one of the best ways for artistic musical people to build career confidence is through collaborating in teams. Working in a group is supportive - and it's more fun. Our groups of Gig-Arts participants regularly go out into their local community to showcase their talent. This spreads creative enthusiasm and love to the people they encounter. When our Gig-Arts groups reach out into the community, they help to combat loneliness, isolation and exclusion. This is the power of our Gig-Arts young leaders of tomorrow.
Music that is performed by young people has enormous power to heal. Music Therapy is tried and tested and is an established success in hospitals. Likewise, the beauty of the visual arts uplifts and heals. Uniting the power of enthusiastic youth with the power of healing Arts is the epitome of Gig-Arts.
