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 and you can come to as many sessions you are able to. 

Youth Collective takes place termly, see dates below:
Autumn term: 1 October – 10 December 2016
Spring term: 14 January – 25 March 2017
Summer term: 1 April – 24 June 2017

This year we will be working with artists Lucy Joyce and Shepherd Manyika.

“I want to do something creative in the art world. Coming here has helped understand this better. And it’s fun. I always enjoy working here. There are no limitations and everyone’s really nice.”
- Member of CAC Youth Collective
