Free Summer Youth Arts Workshop

In the summer holidays Royal Pavilion & Museums will be running an exciting arts programme for young people aged 13-19 (up to 24 years with additional needs). These workshops will explore the themes of Environment and Extinction.

The participants will have the opportunity to explore our collections, buildings and exhibitions, meet museum staff and work with professional artists to learn new creative skills. It is a great opportunity to do something creative and fun in a supportive and inspiring environment. Lunch will be provided and the workshops are free. Participants can sign up for 1 workshop or all 3.

The programme is designed for young people who may not have visited the Museum before and will be particularly targeted at young people who may be socially excluded. 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). These workshops are inclusive of different abilities.

If you are interested, or know a young person who might be, then please contact Sarah Pain to book a space: sarah.pain@brighton-hove.gov.uk / 07833 483245.

All workshops will include a tour of the venue:
