Rosie has been working as an associate artist with Firefly Arts for 3 years and has led and supported many different art projects.
Her main body of work has involved establishing the Helping Young People Engage (HYPE) Media Skills course which works in partnership with West Lothian Council to work with young people who have left school and are seeking employment or further education opportunities. Rosie, Firefly and the HYPE young people have collaborated and explored many different artforms throughout the course, including visual art, performance, film-making, animation and spoken word. The course has gone from strength to strength including seeing some participants go on to work and study within the artistic field. Here is the latest film from the group.
Rosie has also worked on many other Firefly Arts projects which you can find on their website here. Including F Gaze working film maker Jen Randall of Lightshed Productions and young female participants from Firefly Arts to create a short film. The film has recently won Best Film at First Cut! Youth Film Festival and you can watch below.
