Royal Pavilion Museums exciting summer arts programme for young people!

Join Royal Pavilion & Museums this summer for their exciting summer arts programme. Available for young people aged 13-19 (up to 24 years with additional needs), the creative and varied workshops will take place in each of the 5 sites across Brighton & Hove and are free to attend.

Participants will have the opportunity to explore Royal Pavilion and Museum buildings and collections, meet museum staff and work with professional artists to learn new creative skills in interactive sound art, drama, printmaking, urban art and clay.

The programme is designed for young people who may not have visited the museums before and will be particularly targeted at young people who may be socially excluded.

Furthermore, if you know young people who are completing their Arts Award then these workshops can be incorporated into their awards.

The summer programme is a great opportunity to do something creative and fun in a supportive and inspiring environment. Participants can sign up for 1 workshop or all 5 and lunch will be provided.
