The organisers of the Aberdeen International Youth Festival are looking for volunteers to help support their “See the World in Aberdeen” creative art project and pop up gallery space.
The interactive venture has seen hundreds of young people from the north east making 3D hot air balloon models.
But now, the organisers of the festival need helpers to manage the gallery and help run events and workshops.
Those selected will be able to use the project to help them earn volunteering awards including the Duke of Edinburgh and Saltire Awards.
Entries received so far have included a project created by the entire Glass Primary School in Huntly and a mobile of balloons representing different countries, formed by Skene Square Primary School.
Young people of all ages have made models for the gallery.
Hannah Titus, a first-year pupil at Hazlehead Academy said: “We were lucky enough to have been given the opportunity to make a 3D Sea Creature which we designed from our imagination.
“We learned lots of new skills like pasting, papier mache, crafting, model-making, 3D sculpting, colour ways, patterns and lots more.”
Hilary Forbes, a teacher at the school said: “I very much look forward to seeing them displayed together in an exhibition as they are all unique and individually reflect the pupils themselves.”
The festival is celebrating its 45th anniversary this year, and will take place from July 28 to August 5.
