Toonspeak are on a mission to transform lives through creativity. We run free artist led workshops and creative projects for young people from across Glasgow 

We are currently running an expanded range of projects for 0-25 year olds, and are planning more. We’ve started the year digitally and will return to face to face delivery as soon as it is safe and practical to do so

Recognised as forerunners in youth leadership and inclusive governance, Toonspeak are proudly Young Person Led, with participants supported to serve on our board of directors and empowered to influence the development of the organisation. Rooted in community centres and working with a network of amazing partners across Glasgow, we are community-focused; and at the same time global in our outlook, seeking to develop a model of excellence to influence peers across sectors throughout Scotland and beyond, with young people playing a leading role in that vision.

The Scottish Charity Awards 2014 - Winner: Charity of the YearNamed SCVO Scottish Charity of the Year 2014, and the first youth-led organisation to join Creative Scotland’s portfolio of Regularly Funded Organisations, Toonspeak have been celebrated for our commitment to equality, and our person-centred approach.

Our activities include theatre, music, dance, writing, creative therapies, personal development, technical production, arts & crafts, creative careers coaching, digital music production, and Slime! All activities are provided at zero cost, with free transport and food provided where needed in order to meet our commitment to absolute equality of access. The aim of our activities is to enable each young person to realise the boundless extents of their own potential.
