About Caged Beastie....

Caged Beastie was formed by artist Martin Ayres. Martin previously worked as a manager and artist with a range of agencies including North Edinburgh Arts and WHALE and in 2004 decided to use his skills and experience to develop the personal project that became Caged Beastie. Since then we have worked in partnership with a huge range of agencies to develop arts and media projects for social change.

 

We develop and deliver creative learning opportunities for and with people in Scotland and internationally using creative and digital media as a means of expression and as a vehicle for creativity and advocacy. This involves working in partnership with schools, museums, local authorities, community organisations and various other non-governmental organisations.

We also operate as a production company, taking dynamic and innovative approaches to the creation of filmic, graphic and photographic artworks geared to the needs of of a broad range of groups and individuals.

 

We work in partnership with organisations of all shapes and sizes. In recent years we have worked with small local schools and projects in Kirkcaldy and Dunfermline and on projects with partners including agencies such as the Scottish Government, Investing in Children, Scottish Women's Aid and Swansea, Glasgow, Strathclyde and Edinburgh Universities. We have also worked internationally for organisations including Children and Young People's Commissioner Scotland, The European Network of Ombudspersons for Children and Living Earth Foundation.

 

Caged Beastie projects can be tailored to suit the needs of the people and agencies we work with. Projects can be large or small, long or short, designed to meet the needs of groups and individuals or to create materials for the promotion of learning.

 

Central to our work is the idea that arts and media can be used to give people a voice; the opportunity to explore and express their views about the world around them, the systems that support them and the issues that affect their lives. To stimulate change.

 

We'd like to work with you. If you'd like to know more about us or to speak to Martin about your ideas please feel free to do so via our contact page.
