Put a spring in your step with our TikTok challenge!

Hot on the heels of Nathan Evans’ runaway success with the ‘Wellerman’ sea shanty, we’ve launched our #SkylarkIXseashantychallenge on TikTok!

We’re inviting 13 – 24 year olds across West Dunbartonshire to use the Wellerman song as a springboard for their imagination, adding their own creative twist, whether that’s duetting, adding new lyrics or a dance, popping in some visual art or even creating a ‘look’ through make-up!

Watch our volunteer Erin Dyer kick off the #SkylarkIXseashantychallenge making an origami boat in quick time!

Jade West, Volunteer Co-ordinator at the Skylark IX Recovery Project, explains:

“The #SkylarkIXseashantychallenge is a little light-hearted lockdown fun for young people across West Dunbartonshire. All they need to do is make a TikTok video using the Wellerman song, add their own imagination and post it with the hashtag #SkylarkIXseashantychallenge. There’s a model boatbuilding kit with tutorials and more up for grabs for a video picked at random next month.”
