In 2016 Royal Pavilion & Museums will be running an exciting summer arts programme for young people aged 13-19 (up to 24 years with additional needs). A creative workshop will take place in each of our 5 sites across Brighton & Hove – all of them are free to attend.
The participants will have the opportunity to explore our buildings and collections, meet museum staff and work with professional artists to learn new creative skills such as fabric monoprinting, drama, iPad animations, graffiti and carved clay tiles.
The programme is designed for young people who may not have visited the Museums before, and will be particularly targeted at young people who may be socially excluded or those not in education, employment, or training (NEET).
Furthermore, if you know young people who are completing their Arts Award then these workshops can be incorporated into their awards (www.artsaward.org.uk).
The summer programme is a great opportunity to do something creative and fun in a supportive and inspiring environment. Participants can sign up for 1 workshop or all 5. Lunch and refreshments will be provided.
If you are interested, or know a young person who might be, then please contact Sarah Pain to book a space: firstname.lastname@example.org / 07833 483245.
