Still from a short film about The Secret Self(ie) Project

This summer, MK Gallery’s Project Space will be transformed into a youth hub through The Secret Self(ie) Project. From 25 July to 30 August, teenagers aged 13 to 18 will have the opportunity to take over this space and work alongside cutting edge artists, musicians and inspiring youth mentors to create a series of events or exhibitions.

The Secret Self(ie) Project is an opportunity to meet like-minded young people and to explore new ways of thinking.

Dave Ronalds, Programme Manager at MK Gallery said: "It’s great to be working on The Secret Self(ie) Project this summer. It’s such a unique opportunity for young people and will give them access to a set of experiences not available elsewhere. They’ll have six weeks of working closely with artists and musicians and being in the position to change the direction of the project. They’re going to be in complete control and it will be exciting to see what they come up with!’"

Participation is completely free and anyone is welcome. The project will take place throughout the summer, but participants can take part as much or as little as they like during that time. Register to take part by contacting Dave Ronalds on 01908 558 311 or
