Joint Creativity is an arts programme hosted by Versus Arthritis Young People and Families Service (YPFS) and funded by the Northwood Charitable Trust. The programme is for young people aged 10-18 years old living with arthritis or other related conditions. Each year the programme offers a range of workshops and residentials to create artwork for an exhibition. The artwork explores the young people views and experiences of living with a long-term health condition. Art Write Us is part of the Joint Creativity programme for 2023. The exhibition contains personal and group pieces from young people involved with YPFS Scotland. The artwork explores the young people’s views, use and understanding of words and language in relation to themselves, their condition and self-care.

This years exhibition includes artwork from young artists Charlie, Holly, Jessica, Kaydee, Keira, Kyle, Lorna, Lucy, Maliha, Red, Sarah, Skye, Soumaya and Thomas.

    Over the course of 2024 Out of the Blue will continue to offer opportunities for artists and members of the community to learn, participate and earn income.

    We use the space we have developed in 6 buildings in Edinburgh for studios, workshops, classes, projects, exhibitions, social enterprises, events, clubs, music making, markets, a cafe and more.

    Our all year round activity helps create the culture of the city, supporting the local economy and having positive social impact for the thousands of individuals and organisations we work with.

    We would humbly accept a financial donation, however small, in support of our work.
