Learn Digital Skills to Help Your Creative Group or Project
Created: 04/07/2017, Updated: 06/07/2017
Are you aged 50+ and involved with a creative group or project? Keen to learn new digital skills to help run your group? Then register for Voluntary Arts Scotland's new project, 'Putting the social into social media' to take part in their FREE digital training aimed at people aged 50+.
Tell them where in Scotland you're based, which group you're involved with and what skills you would like to learn. They'll use the information to shape a series of digital training sessions, which will take place at four locations across Scotland - and they'll also record the sessions for you to watch online.
Why take part? The internet and other digital technologies can help creative groups grow and flourish in a number of ways. They offer new ways to communicate, secure funding and reach out to potential members, audiences and volunteers.
Many people aged 50+ are already digital experts and regularly use their skills to help run creative groups and provide organisational support. But research carried out by the Scottish Government Digital Participation Charter Fund suggests that some people in this age group would benefit from training to help boost confidence in carrying out tasks on computers, mobiles and tablets.
This project aims to help you and your creative group benefit from taking an active role in the digital world. If you fit the bill and are interested in taking part, or know someone who might find this training useful, please register your interest here.
Please note the deadline for registering interest is Monday 07 August 2017.
