The engagement of young artists: shaping the future or today?
12 March 2010
Our first provocation paper has been written by 19-year-old Emrys Green, who has been involved in shaping local and national cultural learning programmes. His experience is that often, participation is at a delivery level and doesn't involve young people in a venue or organisation's direction and development. He also feels that young people are often considered as 'the future', whereas the cultural activities they are involved in should really lead to them being acknowledged as artists, creators and curators of today.
Read the provocation paper and then let us know what you think.
