Start School Programme Celebration

Art Exhibition by 300 Young People

18 Jan 2018 - 21 Jan 2018

Students from Nottingham city schools will take over The Space on Thur 18 - Sun 21 January with an exhibition of their artwork and writing inspired by our recent exhibition, States of America.

300 young people from primary and secondary schools across the city have been working with our team of artists and writers to create poetry, sculptures, photography, installations, masks and theatre sets.

The Start programme, funded by Children & the Arts aims to engage and inspire young people, develop their confidence to express ideas and opinions, as well as encouraging a sense of pride and achievement through the exhibition and celebration of their work.

Children and young people aged five to fifteen have taken part from Bluebell Hill Primary School, Bluecoat Beechdale Academy, Djanogly City Academy, Milford Academy, Oakwood Academy and Rufford Primary School.

The event will celebrate the creativity of local young people and the partnership we have with our city schools. We are looking forward to lots of young people and their families coming along to the celebration and seeing their artworks fill our Space.

"The workshops were fantastic - the children were really inspired by the photographs and the artists we worked with were wonderful. We are all really looking forward to seeing our exhibition." Teacher, Milford Academy

The celebration event on Thur 18 and Fri 19 January is for teachers and students.

The exhibition will be open Sat 20 and Sun 21 January. Everyone welcome. Come and take part in our family activities too! 11am - 3pm. Drop in. Free.

The project is funded by Children & the Arts.
