Argyll Youth Arts is a growing network of creative organisations, artists and youth sector groups working across Argyll & Bute to develop a more vibrant and robust youth arts scene in this magnificent but geographically challenging region of Scotland. Argyll Youth Arts is one of nine regional arts hubs established with seed funding from Creative Scotland’s Time to Shine fund.

With a focus on youth empowerment and employment we seek to drive forward the Scottish Government’s youth arts strategy, Time To Shine, which places young people at the heart of the decision making process and empowers them to take charge of creative activities available to them. Bringing professional artists and organisations, from Argyll and beyond, together with the passionate, creative youth living here we hope to create more opportunities for young people to pursue their artistic aspirations and broaden their knowledge of the dynamic arts scene in Scotland. We also aspire to encourage others to explore the life-enhancing benefits of creative expression.

Argyll Youth Arts is led by Comar, Argyll’s multi-arts organisation based on Mull, with a network of regional hubs led by key arts partners.
