Youth Beatz Fringe seeks partners ahead of 2019 festival

The Youth Beatz Fringe is inviting youth and community groups, voluntary organisations, and young people across Dumfries and Galloway to apply for funding of up to £500 to host an event in the run up to this year’s festival.

The event must be targeted at young people, aged 12 to 25, and be held between Friday June 15 and Thursday June 20.

The Fringe is a series of youth events leading up to the Youth Beatz Festival that will take place this summer.

Organisers are seeking applications for fun, innovative and free activities that will promote health and wellbeing and the arts and culture. Fringe events in the past have included family fun days, sports activities, music events, health and wellbeing days, roller discos and so much more.

Dumfries and Galloway Council’s Young People’s Champion, Councillor Adam Wilson said: ‘This is a great opportunity for organisations and groups to become part of Youth Beatz by offering the financial support they need to host their own free activities and events for young people across our region on the lead up to what is set to be another exciting and sell out festival.”

If you’re interested in working in partnership with Youth Beatz 19, visit see www.youthbeatz.co.uk where you can access a simple, online application form.

The closing date for applications is Friday 26 April 2019.
