Hi Janet, trawling through the web I found your request. I'm also researching the same kind of topics, here at Glasgow school of Art and I would be very interested in sharing some ideas and experiences from Scotland.
At present I'm working in a youth centre in the North of Glasgow and undertaking Arts work with young people in group work settings. My work is currently looking at how artswork can be more integral to all types of informal education. Like drug education, sex education and personal developement. The other questions I am grappling with issues surrounding funding of arts projects in communities, partnerships, and developing ways of working between youth workers, artists, young people, social workers, government bodies, etc.
I would be interested to here your experiences........
