Come and play, get involved, get messy, sing loudly, have fun, eat ice cream.
Art Inspiring Change is a child-led project and Turner Contemporary’s most ambitious learning initiative to date.
We are working with 80 children from 4 Primary Schools - Holy Trinity & St John’s Primary School, Northdown Primary School, Palm Bay Primary School and Salmestone Primary School, between January 2016 and July 2017. The Young Art Leaders (YALs) will be supported by their chosen artists, a philosopher and gallery staff to inspire the whole town to engage with art, transforming Margate through physical and social change.
As part of the project, 40 parents and/or carers will take part in an accredited Creative Enabler course, giving them the practical, listening, thinking, communication and practical skills to help children to take the lead.
Turner Contemporary is very grateful for the support of The Paul Hamlyn Foundation, The Art Fund and Southeastern.
