The Why?s Man

"My art is place specific and people specific." George Wyllie

Back to The George Wyllie Education Initiative in Schools


Pupils at John Paul Academy became the resident musicians for the education initiative when the Ukulele Group, a group of S2 boys, worked on their own arrangement of George Wyllie's Paper Boat Song.

Along with S5 pupils Laura Divers (soloist) and Cameron Symington (bass guitar), the S2 pupils performed at various special events and took part in both the Press Preview and the visit of Michael Russell.
