About Youth Forum:
YOUTH FORUM is Falmouth Art Gallery’s brand new collective for young people
 

Our Aims are to:

  • Provide a supportive space for local young people to socialise and connect
  • Give young people the opportunity to develop critical thinking and communication around social justice issues
  • Work with local cultural organisations and connect them to young people
  • Create opportunities for young people to meet and work with Artists and creative practitioners
  • Attending Youth Forum sessions which will take place in the Falmouth Art Gallery at least 6 times a year on Saturdays from 11am-3pm
  • Sessions will be led by local artists and social justice and heritage organisations who will put together a day of art workshops, talks, presentations and conversation
  • Events will be free to attend – info & tickets will be sent to you via the mailing list once you’ve signed up
  • You can expect to make new friends & connect with other young people
  • Taking part, you’ll gain new skills and learn about social justice issues through discussion and making art
  • No previous Art experience necessary- we’re just looking for people who’d like to learn more about Art and Social Justice issues
  • You’ll need to be aged 14-18 to get involved (For under 14’s check out Splanna, our earth justice youth group for 11-14 year olds)
  • If you’re interested to learn more about work experience/volunteering opportunities with us, joining one of our groups or coming to events and workshops here can be a great way to get to know us
  • For young people starting to think about career pathways & higher ed, this is a great opportunity to boost your confidence & learn skills to add to your repertoire

The first Youth Forum session will be held on the 11th February |  2024

After the first 6 sessions, we’re aiming to develop this project further; we’d love to bring in opportunities for youth led projects. These could involve anything from collaborating with artists, developing a youth panel, curating exhibitions to organising an event.
