Join us for an innovative programme of free events, installations and special performances.

Too Young for What? provides opportunities to develop and showcase young people’s creativity and showcases a range of new work with and by young people from across east London and beyond. The day explores what Basquiat and his practice means to young and emerging artists through a range of art forms including music, performance, street art and poetry.

Programme highlights include Basquiat inspired work from Barbican Guildhall Creative Learning’s community of young creatives, including the Barbican Young Poets, Young Programmers and Young Visual Arts Group.
