Research title: Using the capabilities approach to explore young people’s wellbeing during school holidays and the role of creative arts during this time

Research Summary

Research Summary

My research aims to explore how young people in Greater Glasgow feel that their wellbeing is affected by the experiences they have during school holidays and to what extent creative arts experiences and engaging with community arts organisations during this time is important to them. I am using creative and participatory methods in interview and focus group settings with young people and my work is framed within the Capabilities Approach.
