What is the AccessArt Young Artists Project?

AccessArt Young Artists is a new idea to help celebrate the creative and collaborative potential of teenagers.  

The AccessArt Team will work remotely alongside a chosen team of creative teenagers. The teenagers will be chosen for their passion and commitment to their artform. 

The role will give teenagers the opportunity to develop their own creative skills, whilst working with AccessArt to create resources for the AccessArt website. Young Artists will work to help us shape the direction of AccessArt to ensure we continue to appeal to a wide audience.

Most exciting, the Young Artists will be given the opportunity to collaborate with each other (remotely) on creative projects which are devised in direct response to the chosen Young Artists. 

Applications for AccessArt Young Artist 2019/2020 are now closed.

Background to the Project

The AccessArt Young Artists Project was devised as a direct result of working with teenagers in the #BeACreativeProducer Project. The #BeACreativeProducer Project highlighted the effectiveness of enabling creative teenagers to work together towards an end result which could be valued by others, whilst at the same time celebrating and enabling the creative journey which takes them on that path. 

The AccessArt Young Artist project was piloted in 2019 – you can See our Pilot Young Artists here.
