Voluntary Arts Scotland have announced their latest project, “Putting the Social into Social Media”, which will consist of a series of FREE digital training workshops this autumn.
These workshops are for those aged 50 years and over who are involved in running a creative cultural group or project in Scotland.
Voluntary Arts Scotland are calling for expressions of interest to identify who would benefit from this training, and establish what skills people would most like to learn. All those who get in touch will be invited to attend the training in person or watch it online.
The training will be delivered in conjunction with the digital team at Supersize Media, who will tailor-make the training sessions based on the feedback Voluntary Arts Scotland receives from expressions of interest.
The internet, and other digital technologies, can help creative groups grow and flourish in a number of ways. They offer new ways to communicate, secure funding and reach out to potential members, audiences and volunteers.
Many people who are 50 years old and over are already comfortable with using digital methods, and regularly use their skills to help run creative groups and provide organisational support. However, research suggests that some people would benefit from training to help boost confidence in carrying out tasks on computers, mobiles and tablets.
The deadline for expressions of interest is Monday 7th August.
For further information, or to submit an expression of interest, please contact Voluntary Arts Scotland by phone: 0131 561 7333, or visit the Voluntary Arts Scotland website.
