Moat Brae will soon open as the new National Centre for Children’s Literature and Storytelling and it's looking for volunteers aged 14 to 26 who would like to help run a major community takeover event at the house in December.
The event, called Mutiny, will be a fantastic community takeover day and forms an important part of Moat Brae’s Dreams for the Future Festival, one of the final Year of Young People events for Dumfries and Galloway. Moat Brae will invite the people of Dumfries and Galloway to come along and find out more about Moat Brae and how it intends to help champion young creativity throughout the area and beyond.
Mutiny will take place between 11 and 3pm on Saturday 1st December 2018 at Moat Brae House and will feature a variety of fun experiences. There will be in-character storytellers, face painters and wonderful arts and craft activities provided by professional artists. Visitors will enjoy a sneak peek at the interiors of the house and will have a chance to sample some of the exciting things the new centre will have to offer. They will be able to talk to the Moat Brae team and learn more about how it hopes to inspire, encourage and educate people of all ages.
If you help run a youth organisation that would like to take part in this event or would like to learn more about the Dreams of the Future festival or Moat Brae itself, please contact John Molloy at firstname.lastname@example.org
