I’m Duncan, I am the new Arts and Culture Engagement worker based with Renfrewshire Council's Youth Services. If you are a care experienced young person or young carer who loves the arts and wants to get more involved in the arts and culture in Renfrewshire, you can contact me at the email address below and I’ll be happy to chat to you about what you’re into and let you know what’s out there for you in your area. This could be:


  • Graffiti and Street Art
  • Film and photography
  • Music and sound
  • Fashion and textiles
  • Writing and poetry
  • Dance and performance
  • Comedy
  • Drawing and animation


Or, if there’s something not on this list that you love and want to do more of, just let me know and I can help you get involved. Also, If you need financial support to travel to art events or funding to create your own art project, I can help you with this too.


What could you do?

If you are a care experienced young person or young carer and want to create an art work in a youth-friendly space please get in touch with me. This could be about an issue you care deeply about or just to make your space look cooler. You can contact me and share your ideas using the email below and I can get in touch for a chat.
