Stevie Grace Kolar 

(She/her)

25 

I am a young single mother who lives and works in Dunoon, I have lived in Dunoon all my life. I currently work at Dunoon Burgh Hall and with The POP Shop and Hannah Clinch of Tacit Tacit where I am gaining experience in digital marketing and comms on a freelance basis. Through studying Digital Marketing I aim to have a future in social media management and marketing consultancy.' 

I am part of CU30s as I feel it is important to be a voice and representative for others who may not have the same opportunities. I want to show people there is more than one way to achieve their goals. I am hoping this will help young people who are looking to expand their skills and knowledge and give them a platform where they can feel heard and supported. It's so needed! 

 

Amy Johnstone

I have an interdisciplinary background combining science and cultural heritage collections. I have a MLitt in Technical Art History which started me on the path of examining artist’s materials, techniques, and how these impact the preservation of art. As a result, I’ve worked in various roles focused on cultural heritage collections, from working in a conservation lab to cataloguing work to writing for exhibitions.

CHARTS enabled me to develop more sector-specific skills through a placement at Dunoon Burgh Hall as an Exhibition Assistant. I got a lot out of this experience and thus would like to support emerging opportunities in arts and heritage as part of CU30.

 

Sam McManus

(He/Him)

Originally from the outskirts of Glasgow, I am a full-time student currently studying an undergraduate degree in Archaeology. Out-with my studies, I work part-time and enjoy travelling to new places and visiting places of cultural significance such as art galleries and museums.

I also find time to indulge my interest in researching family genealogy for myself and others, reading up on history, particularly that of Ancient civilisations. I previously worked alongside CHARTS with the Heritage Horizons projects where I was responsible for writing and recording a digital tour for Historic Kilbride, an important ecclesiastical site near Oban.

Being part of CHARTS Under 30’s I will contribute my perspective as a young person focusing on my belief that it is necessary to revive and challenge the old narratives that exist within the Heritage sector.

I live in Dunoon, Argyll. I am a graduate of the Gender History course at the University of Glasgow, and I am an incoming Museum Studies student there. I am currently working as a Museum Assistant at Dunoon's Castle House Museum. I am passionate about the inclusion of under-represented histories in heritage spaces.  

 

Kirsten Millar

(She/Her)

I am an artist and freelancer working and living on the West Coast. I first got into CHARTS as a Modern Apprentice studying Digital Marketing and Communications in September 2021. Since then I have worked with CHARTS in other capacities and they have helped to kick start my career and also helped to support and develop my art practice. I am dyslexic and want to help other young people get the skills and training that was provided to me such as help in application writing, developing confidence and creating strong community networks.
