The Arches Commons: The New Bill
Sun 26 Apr 2015
The Arches, 253 Argyle Street, Glasgow G2 8DL
If young people are the future, when are they allowed to shape it?
The New Bill is a research collective directed by Stephanie Katie Hunter. Since undergoing a placement with Sarah Munro, Head of Arts for Glasgow Life, Stephanie has been critiquing the role of the individual within an arts community. The New Bill has been asking itself a question that was at the heart of many of Stephanie and Sarah’s conversations: What is the role of a young person in the creative industry?
As a student at the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland – how does the effects of Stephanie’s work differ between now and when she graduates? Does her input to her local community have more value as she is a training artist than an individual who hasn’t entered higher education in the arts?
The aim of the collective is to find structures that allow for young people to participate in the creative industry to the best of their ability while acknowledging their need and/or want to learn more. These structures and potential methods of collaborating with young people will then be compiled into a manifesto of intent. This manifesto will be the foundation for Stephanie Katie Hunter and The New Bill to begin conversing with local and national arts organisations that work with those aged 16 – 25.
The New Bill will be presenting this manifesto at both The Arches Commons: The New Bill and The Arches Commons: The New Bill (Amended). The purpose of the discussion at both events will be to critique the manifesto and offer a learning moment to both the young people who are a part of the collective and the audience present. Between both events the collective will review the manifesto and revise it.

Hosted by guest facilitators, The Arches Commons is an open place for discussion by and for artists, based around themes explored in BEHAVIOUR 2015. Join us.
