Braw Talent are a group of qualified teachers who develop and deliver high quality arts programmes for children and young people, collaborating with schools, community groups and organisations across Scotland.
As a social enterprise they are committed to making creative arts activities accessible - striving for a more inclusive and diverse future for Scotland's creative industries.
From scriptwriting and prop making to shooting and performance, this programme allows participants to take on a chosen role within our crew, learning about the skills, techniques and the associated creative careers.
Using paper prop making and mobile devices, we explore the techniques of stop motion animation, script writing and sound recording to create short films.
Participants can learn the key principles behind planning, recording, presenting and publishing their own podcast.
The best camera is the one you have access to - these days that's the one in your pocket. This programme walks pupils through utilising their devices to plan, shoot footage, record audio and edit movies all on their device.
Exploring design, layout, illustration and hand drawn typography to create a piece of design from book covers or packaging to posters.
An event designed to bridge the gap between education and the UK's most rapidly growing sector - the creative industries. During this one day event we invite local practitioners to present information about their job and their unique career pathway in an attempt to better inform young people of the opportunities and career possibilities.
I am delighted to recommend the work of the Braw Talent team, Darren, Lydia, and Colm. Professional, collaborative, transparent and without doubt highly creative, the team took time to understand our project aims before producing an innovative proposal.
In addition to their own individual strengths and talents, the Braw Talent team were also able to engage people from their wide network, including people from the creative industries, to help deliver the project.
They developed and facilitated a wonderful multi-age, cross curricular, creative project, where 23 children and young people from St Paul's RC High School in Glasgow and feeder primary schools, worked together to co create a film on what school could look like in 2030. The opportunities, learning and experiences the project and Braw Talent provided for the children and young people were amazing and the outcome beyond our expectations.

After the initial group zoom call ideas really got rolling and we were amazed at just how quickly the project came together! A highlight was definitely seeing the campaign develop in the form of scriptwriting, storyboarding, and performing into the 3 final videos. The young people really grew in confidence as the sessions progressed.

Professional, educational and FUN! Cannot recommend Braw Talent highly enough. Kids were engaged and loved learning more about how to use their devices to create more professional content. By the end of the programme they were able to interview peers, staff and funders, film their own content and set up a film set!
