Fablevision is based in Glasgow with a remit to support the development of Cultural Planning in Scotland. We fulfill our remit by creating projects that demonstrate the added value of creative approaches in policy and planning: projects that engage, involve, train and provide employment opportunities for the hardest to reach and furthest from the workplace.
Fablevision’s impact therefore, is principally in employability:
– reaching hard to reach 16 – 25-year-olds (and older, disadvantaged unemployed people).
– developing skills for employment, planning and policy within marginalised communities.
Fablevision in Action
Fablevision started in 1984 with the launch of an arts and disability project – Birds of Paradise – now in its third decade. This was followed by place and community-based initiatives such as Royston Road, BoltFM, Renfrewshire Witch Hunt 1697 and Tapestry of Renfrewshire. More recently – and still with a distinct local focus – Fablevision has worked with like-minded European organisations on projects which have included: Riverside Solidarity, Memory of Water, Woven Network and Erasmus Bridging Digital.
