    To celebrate Refugee Week we’d like to share a piece of work we recently had the opportunity to develop with a fantastic group of young people who all arrived in Glasgow as young unaccompanied Asylum Seekers. We were able to run this pilot with the support of the Gannochy Trust.

    Click the link to check out Scotland Our New Home, a magazine for Glasgow’s New Arrivals. It was created by the New Young Peers Scotland; a group of young people from all over the world who have been learning together how to make Glasgow a better home for them, and for other young people. The group are supported by Ypeople, Glasgow City Health & Social Care Partnership,and Anniesland Clyde College.

    Within the project the group also developed the map below, with invaluable help from Nahom at Freedom From Torture.

    This project is just one of the many amazing achievements this group have made, and are continuing to do so, having just began to support a whole new group of young people who will certainly benefit from their collective skills, knowledge and experience.

    We look forward to seeing what they achieve next!

    What an achievement for our 5-10 year olds last week when, after just 7 weeks of rehearsals, set design, singing and acting lessons, they performed “The Winter King and The Summer Queen” drama to their friends and families.  Thanks to the brilliant Claudie Layden for pulling this together in such a short space of time.  Lots of happy faces.

  4. In Memory of Gerry Gilmartin

    It is with the deepest sadness that we share the heartbreaking news of the death of our dear friend, Gerry Gilmartin.

    Gerry will be greatly missed here at Plantation Productions by all the staff, volunteers and people who had the pleasure of knowing him. In his role as Chairperson he has supported the development of Plantation Productions and contributed to the success of the Creative Steps to Wellbeing programme. Gerry has been a true advocate for the power of creativity and peer support in his role as Chairperson and also as a volunteer and participant.

    Everyone who’s had the privilege of working with Gerry always found him a caring and generous person and this is truly a great loss to us all and the community as a whole. On behalf of everyone at Plantation Productions we send our heartfelt condolences and sympathy to his wife Gillian and to all his friends and family. We will always remember Gerry with a smile upon our face.
