Less than a week to get applying!
Updated: Sep 3, 2019
Last week we said (tearful) goodbyes to those of the Council who are leaving us for places at university and art school. They will be very much missed but we wish them all the best for the future and they reamin very much part of the Jupiter family. It's good news for you if you are aged 16-18, at school in Scotland and interested in art and meeting new people as we are recruiting for new council members right now, until Wed 4 Sept.
Taking part in ORBIT is completely free. Through the project you will develop confidence, gain an understanding of careers in the creative industries and join a strong peer group which will support you through the transition from school into whatever the future holds.
If you are or know a young person you who would benefit from this experience please click the APPLY button now to download an application form.
Here's what some of our leavers told us about their experience:
‘Outside ORBIT, I don’t know anyone else who is interested in art, with ORBIT I felt like these are my people …. I feel like we’ve known each other for years. ORBIT has helped me come out of my shell’
I feel like my contribution is valued by a group of people I know and trust. This has been the best thing in my 6th year. Honestly it has meant so much to me and changed who I am’ Jenny
‘The biggest thing I have gained from ORBIT is personal confidence but also this large network of people from all over Scotland who I’ll keep in touch with long after I’ve left the Council’
‘It brings out a passion in you. It makes you happy. You can come here and talk about art and it broadens your mind’
