Dunoon Burgh Hall

Our Community Projects

Alongside our programme of exhibitions, theatre, film and music we run learning programmes for our community.

We deliver workshops in dance, theatre, textiles, film and animation, visual arts and literature.

We deliver family workshops; classes to inspire the individual learner; an ambassadors programme for young people; and arts and heritage activities with our local schools.

We do all of this by working with freelance artists, designers and filmmakers and by bringing in partners, such as Screen Argyll, Charts and ARTIST ROOMS.

We supported the setup and development of the YouthSTUFF youth theatre group, which works weekly with over 50 young people aged 8 to 18.

These projects bring people together to alleviate loneliness for our rural community;  bring new skills and experiences; are a source of fun and friendship for children and families, and can be the first steps for young people into a career in the Creative Industries.
