GET animated at a very special creative event.

That’s the plea to youngsters – with advice up for grabs on animation, model-making and more.

East Dunbartonshire Leisure and Culture Trust will host a Creative Industries Day at Woodhill Evangelical Church in Bishopbriggs tomorrow (Thursday).

The day will give pupils the chance to learn about different career pathways within Scotland’s creative industries.

Councillor Amanda Stewart, chairperson of the leisure trust, said: “It is an extremely valuable opportunity for the young people of East Dunbartonshire to expand their knowledge of possible careers in the sector and consider choices

they had not been previously aware of. The wide range of companies in attendance will hopefully encourage interest within both schools and council staff.”

Groups including YDance, the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland, Red Kite Animations, Creative Scotland and the Birds of Paradise Theatre Company will be at the event to provide information on routes into careers in dance, theatre and music.

There will also be live music, workshops in millinery techniques and model making and animation demonstrations.

The event, which is also open to council and trust staff, and the wider voluntary sector, runs from 9.30am-11.30am and 1pm-3pm. To attend call Esmme Thompson on 0141 777 3092.
