As many of you will know, Hot Tap has been running somewhereto_ in Scotland for a few years now. It’s been a blast. From Freeze Frame to Re:store to Harvey Nick Nacks we’ve run some amazing projects and met some incredible young people.

We’re working with Edinburgh International Film Festival again this year on Youth Hub – a special strand of the festival aimed at 16-25 year olds who might be thinking about working towards a career in film, television or gaming.

We have a brand new opportunity for a passionate, creative individual to join Hot Tap as our somewhereto_ Project Manager in Edinburgh. somewhereto_ is a UK-wide Big Lottery Funded project that helps 16-25 year olds find free space to do what they love.

Argyle House is a fantastic building on Castle Terrace, which now includes a gallery space, theatre space and meeting room. We run this space in partnership with a sister organisation, Space Club, who also offer affordable studio and office style spaces to members.Read More

This year, ShortCUTS volunteer Claire Dufour took the reins and produced ShortCUTS through her own events company, By Ricochet, and has been working with groups of young people in the Coldside, Lochee and Maryfield areas who would not ordinarily have the chance to participate in filmmaking. We supported the project finding spaces for filming, and offering the young people digital Learning Badges for their CVs from somewhereto_.Read More
