Youth Collective: A youth programme for people aged 15-25

Our Youth Collective, for young people aged 15 – 25 years, meets regularly to create, discuss, experience and encounter the visual arts, offering opportunities to be involved behind the scenes at Camden Arts Centre to further career development, skills and knowledge.
Young people involved have the opportunity to gain Arts Award Gold, meet artists, shadow staff, programme events for young audiences and develop their own art practice.

We meet Saturdays, 2.30 – 5.00pm, there is no need to book. You can come to as many sessions you are able to and all materials are provided. This year we are working with artists Lucy Joyce and Shepherd Manyika.

Youth Collective takes place termly, see dates below:
Autumn term: 30 September – 9 December 2017
Spring term: 13 January – 24 March 2018
Summer term: 31 March – 23 June 2018

Alongside the Saturday sessions, our Youth Collective Events series offers people aged between 15 – 25 years the opportunity to engage and learn about matters surrounding contemporary art and artistic production through a series of workshops, talks, interventions and screenings.

On the first Wednesday of every month artists and arts practitioners will be invited to host the evening and share their knowledge, skills and experiences as a way of expanding professional development opportunities. The series will give you a chance to meet new and exciting artists in order to unpack and expand your own creative passions and interests.
