Please welcome Kloee Huberdeau, the Claypits first Digital Youth Artist in Residence!

We are excited to announce that we are employing Kloee Huberdeau as our first Digital Youth Artist in Residence (DYAIR). In this Heritage Lottery Funded role, Kloee will be responsible for carrying out a number of art-led activities particularly focused at engaging young people with the Claypits. These activities will include engaging physically with the site with young people, and also creating outputs that will help us enhance our digital presence. Kloee has something exciting planned for the official Claypits opening on Saturday 31st July, so please come along and meet her if you want to take part. Kloee’s role will run to 31st October 2021.

Kloee is currently undertaking a BA in Contemporary Performance Practice at the Royal Conservatoire in Glasgow. In her own words: ‘I am a multi-disciplinary artist and performer from Calgary Canada, currently based in Glasgow. The defining factor of my artistic practice is the aim to work in a variety of disciplines, both traditional and contemporary, at a professional level and with equal commitment and enthusiasm. My experience and training include the fields of musical and text-based theatre, performance creation, youth drama facilitation, drag, and visual art. I am particularly passionate about working with music and visual meaning to transform our inner worlds into the external.’
