ART31 groups across Kent
Friday 12 May 2017
By motivating young people to be creative, and to try art forms they wouldn’t usually think of. By introducing them to new work that they may not have been able to access before. By developing relationships between arts organisations and young people, leading young people to take control and get involved in making decisions. We have a number of dedicated ART31 groups across Kent. The pilot group started at Gulbenkian, Canterbury, in 2013 and since then other groups have sprung up at Pie Factory Music, Ramsgate and Jasmin Vardimon Company, Ashford (ART31 JVC), with others in the pipeline. These groups meet regularly to plan ART31 events, as well as develop event management/front of house/marketing skills, meet companies, take part in workshops and see new and exciting artistic work. TECH31KENT has also developed, creating opportunities for young people interested in careers in technical theatre to learn from professional technicians and provide technical support for events in Kent. 2016 has seen the creation of the ART31 Youth Board, around 20 young people from locations all around Kent, who meet monthly at Gulbenkian to support and promote the ART31 programme across the county. How can you get involved with ART31KENT? Check out our events and opportunities listings to find out what’s happening near you. In addition to the regular ART31 groups, there are loads of events and creative opportunities for 13-25 year olds happening in Kent, so whatever your interests, there’ll be something for you!
