Registration is open for Young Makers and Young Producers for 2023/24!
Have you got a creative 11-17 year old who needs somewhere to develop their skills? We're recruiting for our 2023/24 cohorts for Young Makers and Young Producers which might be just the place you're looking for!
Young Makers and Young producers are our fortnightly groups for young people aged 11-17 who are interested in developing their creativity, taking part in artist-led projects, attending arts and cultural events and completing a Bronze or Silver Arts Award. Whether your young person is interested in digital arts, drama, painting and drawing, pottery, textiles, photography or something else - this is the place for them to meet like-minded people and develop their creative skills in a warm and welcoming environment.
Arts Award is a range of unique qualifications that supports anyone aged up to 25 to grow as artists and arts leaders, inspiring them to connect with and take part in the wider arts world. You can find out more about it here.
