A multidisciplinary group of Barbican Young Creatives produce new, artistic work that explores the uncertain times we're living in.

Each month for a year, Young Creatives will be commissioned to produce new and powerful artistic work responding to the uncertain times we are living in.

From July 2020, one creative response – ranging from poetry and music to visual arts and moving image – will be published each month on Barbican’s digital and social media platforms, chronicling the next twelve months.

The Young Creatives are: Remi Graves, Oliver Cross, Destiny Adeyemi, Jeremiah Brown & Gabriel Jones, Timalka Kalubowila, Georgia Morgan, Turner Mandisa, Apena & Tice Cin, Esme Allman, Leo Long, Annie Fan & Cia Mangat, Natasia Patel, Hector Dyer.
