The Social Needs Awareness Project (SNAP) provides many different schemes for young people where they can achieve an accredited Arts Award.
Founded in 1978, Luton Community Arts Trust originally ran the innovative and popular, “33” Arts Centre in Guildford Street Luton, which unfortunately was recently demolished. In 1997 a local group initiated SNAP, which was carried forward by “33” and is now administered and managed by the Trust from its new base in the Hat Factory.
The Social Needs Awareness Project (SNAP) provides many different schemes for young people where they can achieve an accredited Arts Award. This includes schools projects, outreach and a weekly drop-in where young people can explore photography, Photoshop, contemporary arts and crafts as well as filmmaking and animation. We also provide an information, advice and guidance service.
SNAP have extensive experience of working with young people, who may have been considered vulnerable or at risk. We do this by exploring social issues through different art mediums; Working with these groups on these types of projects is a way of celebrating their positive attributes, so building their confidence and self-esteem.
