A takeover day combining youth arts and activism in the space. Free Radical, part of the Beatfreeks collective, host a powerful and engaged arts afternoon.
Aged 16 plus and over? Lend your voice and learn about youth activism based on identity. Did you know that nearly half (45 per cent) of LGBT pupils - including 64 per cent of trans pupils - are bullied for being LGBT in Britain's schools? (figure from Stonewall UK) Or that asked to plot themselves on a 'sexuality scale', 23% of British people choose something other than 100% heterosexual – and the figure rises to 49% among 18-24 year olds (figure from yougov.com)
Join us for an afternoon of sharing in the gallery, looking at key works of art in the collections, and working with a fantastic sound artist. Share your views on identity in a warm and inclusive environment. Our artist will record your statements, passion and beliefs on youth identity and use this to create a new sound based piece of art we can share. Connect with like-minded and open people to make art whilst looking at our exhibition from the Arts council Collection.
The event takes place on Saturday 10th March at 1pm - 4pm. Tea, coffee and biscuits provided.
Free drop in event, suitable for aged 16 plus and over.
