Free, all welcome
Times and dates vary, please see below

This summer, the Project Space will be transformed into a youth hub. 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. 

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 dronalds@mkgallery.org.

Further information

Work alongside artists Andy Abbott, Luke Drozd, Kaleidoworks, Chris Bradley, Teresa Paiva and Luke Webb using 360 film, VR, city exploration, movement, experimental music and group sculpture. You will work with other 13-18 year olds to create your own exhibitions and events, having full control over the direction that you want to take. Using the Project Space as your dedicated base, and the area around the Gallery as inspiration, you will experience how it feels to lead, work together and make key decisions. No artistic skill or experience is necessary to participate – the project is about thinking more creatively and being open to the new and surprising forms that creativity might take.
