Sam Maggs is the newly appointed Project Co-ordinator in Edinburgh and Midlothian for a project called Gig Buddies which is run by a charity called Thera (Scotland).
The project aims to pair people with learning disabilities with volunteers, to get them out to local gigs and events and giving them more of a nightlife.
The role requires Sam to set up a network between the Gig Buddies project and local venues and promoters.
One of his 3rd Year projects at university had a very similar feel to it.
“Obviously my work with Jan (Phillips) last year doing Sound Of Mind Music helped a lot and I’m glad to be evidence that the Creative Enterprise module gets people jobs”.
We didn’t try to contact Mr Maggs for further comment as the new Star Wars film comes out today so it is fair to assume that he won’t be picking up his phone.
