Impact Arts is a national community arts charity based in Scotland. They work with a diverse range of people, helping them to use the arts to create positive lasting change in their lives. We come up with creative solutions to social challenges like improving future life prospects, reducing youth unemployment and preventing isolation amongst older people.


Impact Arts are crowdfunding for The Young Gallery project. Based in Glasgow’s East End, it is Scotland’s first and only space dedicated to exhibiting children’s art work. 92% of children in areas of multiple deprivation do not take part in any arts activities and in the East End between 30-50% of children are living in poverty. The Young Gallery is Impact Arts’ vehicle for helping children experience the importance of creativity and for celebrating their boundless imaginations.

The Turner Prize nominated artist, David Shrigley is supporting The Young Gallery project. He said:

“I became involved with The Young Gallery because I want to give something back to the city that I live and work in. Through The Young Gallery, Impact Arts gives a quality artistic experience to 300 children living in the East End of Glasgow each year, and to over 1000 members of the local community and I’m excited to be involved with such a brilliant project.”

Lynne Carr, CE Impact Arts said:

“We are over the moon to have David as the patron of The Young Gallery… We’ve got some exciting things planned with David, including an exhibition and auction of postcard sized artworks at The Young Gallery in 2014. Individuals supporting our Crowdfunding campaign on Indigogo will have an exclusive opportunity to be invited to the exhibition and auction event. We can’t thank David enough for his invaluable support.”
