Meet Ruby, Our First-ever Trainee Community Arts Worker

Ruby Hannon

Ruby Hannon is our first-ever Trainee Community Arts Worker. She started working with us in August and here’s her thoughts on the job so far….

‘I am so pleased to be given the opportunity to join the team, I have loved joining in all the workshops, learning new skills and making a positive impact on everyone’s day.

‘It’s been a great experience – especially with trips and days out and workshops. It has been interesting working with all the team and seeing how everything is run, learning all the jobs and roles within the team and seeing what each member’s responsibility is and shadowing behind. And I am looking forward to seeing what else is to come.’

More Ruby news in January 2024.

Ruby’s apprenticeship is funded by the National Lottery.

Oor First NOEL (a Night Of Entertainment & Laughter)

First Noel

This year on Saturday 9th December we were excited to present our first ever community production – ‘Oor First NOEL’ (a Night Of Entertainment & Laughter). It took place at St Johns Church Hall Aurs Rd, Barrhead.

Our four Barrhead groups, Acting Aces, Drama Llamas, Barrhead Youth Theatre and Dunterlie Adult Drama were all ‘in cahootz’ with other groups in the community to share an afternoon of drama, songs, dance, community spirit and laughter.

Thanks to funding from Barrhead Housing Association – Brighter Futures, our team were able to bring this idea to the Barrhead Community.

Rehearsals Start for Our 2024 Production, ‘The Heckleburnie Hecklers’

Heckleburnie

Rehearsals have begun for Creative Citizens 2024 production, ‘The Heckelburnie Hecklers’ by Martin Travers.

Set in a wee town on the outskirts of Glasgow, is the Heckleburnie Community Centre. It’s the heart of the community, where generations of families have called home. Between the leaky roofs and freezing cold temperatures, the centre is on its last legs. The community is in danger of losing the centre to big property developers, but they won’t go down without a fight.

We meet the colourful characters of Heckleburnie, from the power-hungry council caretaker to the diva stage-mother with the temper of a 2-year-old. And who could forget… Heckleburnie’s own local star-studded band – Cauld Sweat. Follow their stories and watch as they fall apart, and fumble to get themselves back together again.

The play, written by Martin Travers, came from a collaboration between our Creative Citizen Project and drama-based consultation workshops within Glasgow’s Recovery Community. These workshops explored what community means to them, different relationships, and the power of music. The material for this new piece of Scottish theatre was explored in our drama workshops and then passed on to Martin who worked his magic and put it all together.
