Room 13 community studio, based in Caol Youth Centre (CYC), Lochaber, Scotland, was set up in 2012 to expand on the opportunities Room 13 can offer to local people of all ages.

In 2010, Room 13 took on a commission to develop artwork for the town underpass. Hundreds of people, from toddlers to pensioners, contributed to the project. Together, they created a unique piece of public art that remains a source of pride in the community. This project showed that lots of people in the wider community want to take part in creative projects and be associated with Room 13.
This led to the establishment of the Room 13 Community Studio, where local people are encouraged to join in with activities that help foster their creativity and well-being.
Room 13 CYC caters for many different groups, from pre-schoolers to adults of all ages and abilities. The Artist in Residence based at the studio works to develop bespoke projects for different groups and provide opportunities for people at all stages of life to get involved through workshops and open studio sessions. Room 13 CYC operates more flexibly than the school-based studios can, working all year round and building connections with health, education and social services.
The project is being part financed by the Scottish Government and the European Community Highland LEADER 2007-2013 programme.
