A registered charity based in the South of Scotland, TRASH Arts are a leading provider of junk-percussion based workshops and other wide ranging arts projects. Since starting in 1994 we have worked throughout the UK, across Europe and in the Middle East; taking on dance, visual arts, video, mixing in conventional instruments - even doing an opera version of Hamlet. We work with a wide range of client groups: from tinies, through our Nursery Adventures; Primary and Secondary School projects, specialising in composition and performance through the use of found instruments, natural sounds, conventional instruments and techno equipment; partnership with youth organisations; special needs work with young people and adults. Our principal aim is to build confidence in being involved with the arts. A secondary aim is to use our "junk" based work to highlight the consequences of our throwaway society and to build an awareness of the need for a more ecologically sound attitude to the world around us.
