Youth Collective: A youth programme for people aged 15-25

Youth Collective is a space for young people aged 15 – 25 to meet regularly and encounter the visual arts in an open and welcoming environment.

This is an opportunity to get involved behind the scenes at Camden Arts Centre and to gain skills and knowledge to help build a creative future. The Collective is led by artists Beverley Bennett and Fredrik Andersson (a.k.a. FreddeLanka) but it is largely shaped by personal interests.

Youth Collective takes place weekly during term time: We meet Saturday's 2.30 – 5.00pm. No previous art making experience is necessary and there is no need to book. All materials are provided along with free food and drinks, so all you have to do is simply show up.

Talks & Events series
Alongside the Saturday sessions, we offer a Talks & Events series where you can learn about matters surrounding contemporary art and artistic production through a series of workshops, talks, interventions and screenings as a way of expanding professional development opportunities.

Youth Collective Residency - Applications now open!
A residency is where an artist uses a space for a period of time in order to make new work and develop new ideas with practical support. There are two opportunities for Youth Collective artists to have a residency here at Camden Arts Centre over the summer period. The residency will be based in the Drawing Studio and can be used for you to make new and exciting work, test out ideas and explore new materials and processes. This 6 week residency will allow you to develop your art practice and continue working on ideas that have developed from the Youth Collective sessions.
