Mauchline CARS icon 5April 2022

Mauchline Conservation Area Regeneration Scheme (CARS) appointed East Ayrshire Council's Creative Minds Team to establish a partnership between Mauchline primary pupils, Robert Burns Academy pupils and staff, creative practitioners, leisure trust employees and Health and safety to create a week long summer school programme of media, art and Parkour.

Residency

The week will start with a tour of Mauchline and its unique built architecture. Pupils will be encouraged to take pictures and sketch the architecture.

A group of young people will work with:

  • a parkour instructor to create repertoire which will be carried out and filmed at iconic locations throughout Mauchline
  • a dance specialist to create contemporary choreography which will be carried out and filmed at iconic locations throughout Mauchline
  • a digital specialist to learn how to capture this film and edit into a finished short film
  • an art specialist to modernise Mauchline’s buildings into graffiti art work

An end of summer school show will feature performances/displays from each group in a live public community exhibition.

Legacy

A feature film will be created and the young people will have a better understanding and appreciation of their local community and heritage.

Timescales

Due to current restrictions affecting education, this summer school will need to take place in July 2023 in order to tie in all relevant parties to a fixed date.
