History

From its origins in 1992, when the local housing association at that time allocated a tenement house to a group of residents who were keen to participate in the arts, Drumchapel Arts Workshop, (DRAW) has continued to hold a valued and valuable place in the local and wider community. Since those early days many developments and positive partnerships have evolved, and from our milestone achievement of obtaining charitable status in 2010, our recently established venue on the ground floor of a block of high rise flats offers an informal workplace in which those from the local community and beyond can express their creative potential.

Originally DRAW was encouraged to seek funding through Urban Aid, and we are currently funded through GCC from an Integrated Grant Fund. Over the years a dedicated committee has worked to ensure a wide variety of interesting and successful programmes and projects are available to participants. The many statutory organisations and agencies with whom we have worked, including the NHS, occupational therapists, Momentum, Right Track and Careers Scotland continue to help us to open access to the arts and to widen the horizons of those who participate in the project. The sense of wellbeing, confidence and social integration which evolves from appreciating and sharing our cultural wealth is frequently acknowledged by our participants and we welcome and enjoy a diverse clientele.

We have many years’ experience of working with primary and secondary schools, nurseries, parents, adults, those with learning needs, unemployed support groups, ethnic minorities and the elderly, and we also work with organisations such as the Social Work Department, Glasgow Life, COPE, Drumry House, Drumchapel LIFE and GRA.

Success has been celebrated through our achievements. Some examples follow. As finalists for a Career Scotland award with young unemployed youth through a painting and decorating programme, participants were then enabled to progress to apprenticeships and to permanent employment. Working in partnership with Impact Arts, DRAW also provided Fabpad Design workshops offering support to young homeless people, turning houses into homes. Anniesland College satellite National Certificate Arts and Design course ran from DRAW for 6 years, and we were also awarded Creative Social Economy Organisation of the Year in 2011 by Glasgow West Regeneration Agency.

At the present time we continue to offer a range of opportunities and classes to take the project forward in both our new Arts workshop and our clay studio, and with participants coming from a wider geographical spread we look forward to helping to break down social barriers and help Drumchapel and its inhabitants appreciate the life-affirming, socially inclusive benefits of getting involved.
