Opportunities for Local People at Lincluden and Lochside in Dumfries

An exciting range of opportunities has opened up in the North-West area of Dumfries for local people to get involved with the Creative Futures and Lincluden and Lochisde project; The Stove Network’s new four-year project. It is an exciting and innovative project which uses creativity and local history to provide opportunities for people within the Lochside and Lincluden areas of North West Dumfries. They aim to help local people develop their skills, increase their opportunities, improve their quality of life, connect with one another, try out new experiences and thrive as a community.

They are currently looking for a professional camera operator/film editor to work on a short documentary, as well as 3-4 aspiring photographers, who are looking to develop their skills working on real, paid projects. These roles also include ongoing support and advice from professionals.

The project is offering a paid opportunity with professional support for someone to learn on the job to run the Creative Futures social media and assist with marketing. There are also opportunities to help distribute leaflets, flyers and sharing information on social media.

The project is also looking for people who want to make a difference in their community by connecting Creative Futures projects to local people. Their main duties will be to help the project work together with local groups to have a stronger, bigger and positive difference within the community.

If you are interested in finding out more about the history of the local area, the Creative Futures project would love for people to get in touch, especially if they have any old photos, films or stories to share, with the chance to help staff events and collect historical material as part of this project. There are also opportunities to get involved with Public Art Projects, for people who are interested in getting art out into the streets of North-West Dumfries and feel they have the skills and passion for their local area.
